Our answer

Nigella's Warm Shredded Lamb Salad With Mint And Pomegranate (from NIGELLA BITES cooks lamb shoulder in a very low oven for approximately 12-14 hours (from bedtime until lunchtime the following day). The combination of the fat in the lamb shoulder plus the liquid in the pan means that the meat remains moist and tender.

Unfortunately we suspect that it may be difficult to cook the lamb in a slow cooker. Firstly, from a practical point of view, a shoulder of lamb on the bone is quite bulky and is unlikely to fit into the pot of most slow cookers. Also slow cookers vary in temperature, which will affect the cooking times.
