Roast Lamb

Roast Lamb
  • Serves: 8
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 2 hours
  • Cut: Bone-in leg


  • 1 whole leg of lamb, trimmed
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, peeled and cut into slivers
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Note the weight of the lamb and leave at room temperature, covered for 30 minutes. Pierce with a sharp knife and add slivers of garlic and rosemary sprigs. Brush with oil, season and place on an oven rack in a roasting dish.
  2. Preheat the oven to 170ÂșC and roast the lamb for 15-20 minutes per 500g (fan-forced) or until cooked to your liking. Insert a skewer into the thickest part of the leg to the bone, and when the juices run clear the lamb is cooked.
  3. Remove from the oven and rest 25 minutes in a warm place before carving.
