Roast leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary recipe details
|leg of lamb, approx. 1.5-1.8 kg, bones removed
|sea salt and pepper
|lamb stock or beef stock
InstructionsPeel the garlic, then halve or quarter, depending on the size. Divide the rosemary sprigs in pieces of 3 cm. Peel the carrots and cut into rough pieces.
Preheat the oven to 180░C.
With a sharp knife make several small incisions into the meat and tuck in there garlic and rosemary.
Place the carrots on the bottom of a large roasting pan. Brush the lamb with olive oil and rub with salt and pepper, then place the meat onto the carrots. Roast for approximately 1 hour. When the meat and the carrot start to get brown, pour in some broth. Every now and then baste the meat and add more liquid if necessary.
Pierce with a skewer into the thickest part of the leg to check if the meat is done. If the liquid dripping out is clear, the roast is ready. Remove from the oven, cover and keep warm.
Add some stock to the gravy and scrape to loosen the sediments from the bottom of the pan. Strain the sauce through a sieve into a saucepan, bring to the boil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Carve the leg of lamb into neat slices and serve with the gravy.
