Baked Leg Of Lamb


Approx 2 kg leg of lamb
75g butter
1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary
2 tblspns fresh chopped mint
2 tblspns fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp fresh chopped thyme
1 crushed garlic clove
salt & ground pepper


  • Squidge the butter, garlic and herbs together with a half teaspoon of salt and black pepper
  • Using a skewer stab the leg of lamb all over
  • Now rub the butter mixture all over the top of the leg of lamb
  • Parcel the leg up in foil loosely and seal well
  • Cook in a roasting tin for 2 hours
  • After 2 hours open the foil parcel up and let cook for another 30 minutes- this lets the lamb brown and crisp a bit
  • When done put the lamb in a warm serving dish and serve
  • You can make a gravy from the lamb juices if you wish
  • Serve with minted new potatoes and seasonal veggies for a lovely meal!
