A Simple Guide To Cook A Tender Leg Of Lamb

There’s nothing quite like a tender leg of lamb full of flavour. Here’s a simple guide to make your cooking experience easier 😏


- 6 shallots or 3 small white onions, chopped finely

- 4 cloves garlic, chopped finely

- 5g fresh rosemary, chopped

- 5g fresh mint, chopped

- 2 tbsps sugar

- 2 tbsps cracked coriander seeds

- 1 1/2 tbsps salt

- 1 tbsp red chilli flakes

- Free Range Grass Fed Leg of lamb or Lamb Shoulder

- 480ml organic vegetable stock or Organic Chicken Broth



1) In a large bowl, mix the shallots, garlic, rosemary, mint, sugar, coriander, salt and chilli flakes. Rub the mixture over the surface of the lamb. Add butter if you want extra flavour. Place the lamb in a large glass baking dish, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate overnight.

2) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5.

3) Take your lamb & pat it dry. Heat a roasting tray or large ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Brown the lamb on both sides.

4) Set the tray with the lamb in it on a roasting rack and roast, fat side up, until it reaches an internal temperature of 60C, about 1 1/2 hours. Transfer to a platter. Set the tray over medium heat and add the stock, scraping the drippings and stirring to dissolve them in the stock. Simmer until reduced by half.

5) Rest the lamb leg before you serve

6) Serve the lamb with the reduced sauce, mint sauce, and vegetables, such as aubergine, courgette and parsnips, tossed with a splash of olive oil.
