Method

Ingredients

  • 2kg leg of lamb, trim the fat
  • 32g olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1.5kg chat potatoes

Gravy

  • 480g Massel beef-style stock
  • 179g red wine
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons white plain flour

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced) and lightly grease a roasting pan. Place the lamb in the pan. In a bowl, combine the oil, rosemary, and garlic. Rub half the oil mixture over the lamb and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.
  2. After the initial roasting, reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Continue to roast the lamb for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting it with the remaining oil mixture every 20 minutes. If you prefer your lamb medium, it should be ready by this time. You can also adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness. Add the potatoes to the roasting pan for the last 40 minutes, remembering to turn them halfway through cooking.
  3. Take the lamb out of the oven and cover it loosely with foil. Let it sit for 10 minutes before carving and serving it with potatoes.
  4. Combine the stock and wine in a jug after transferring the lamb (and any vegetables) to a plate to rest. Skim the fat from the roasting pan, leaving 1 1/2 tablespoons of pan juices and fat in the pan. Place the pan over high heat, add flour, and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and becomes golden. Add the juices from the resting meat. Slowly add the stock mixture to the pan, stirring constantly. Cook and scrape the pan for 8 to 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
