Benview Farms Perfect Lamb Roast
Nothing beats a tender lamb roast with seasonal veggies and lots
of gravy. Here is how to create the prefect lamb roast.
Benview Farms Leg of Lamb – Bone In or boned and rolled
30 ml olive oil
3 cloves of Garlic – sliced in half
Salt and Pepper
Cut 6 slits, 2 cm long by 2 deep cm, into the lamb. Take 1 slice of garlic and a sprig of rosemary and fill the slit. Cover the lamb with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper.
Place in a preheated oven at 180 C and cook 1/2hr for every 500g – if the
lamb is 1kg cook for 1 hr for medium or longer to your liking.
If you have time turn the temperature down to 160 c and cook for an extra hour. The meat will start to fall apart.
Remove from the oven and cover with foil. Let the lamb rest for at least 5-10 minutes, and then carve.
Pair with your favorite seasonal veggies and mint
