Roast Leg of Lamb

Have you ever roasted a leg of lamb? It sounds intimidating, but the leg of lamb is actually one of the easiest, most fool proof cuts of meat to cook. 


  • 1kg (2lb 3oz) leg of British lamb
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas 6.
  2. Puncture the leg of lamb all over with a small, sharp knife.
  3. Salt and pepper really well.
  4. Sit the leg on scrunched-up foil in a roasting tin. Drizzle over the olive oil and place in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven, wrap in foil and rest for 30-40 minutes. This will give you a perfectly cooked, pink leg of lamb.
