This is an easy leg of lamb recipe that your family will love, flavoured with garlic and rosemary and topped with a rich tomato-rosemary gravy.
For lamb, cook for approx 40 min per kg plus 10 min, or until the way you prefer (rare, medium, well done)
Altered ingredient amounts. I'm giving this 5 stars on ease! The flavour is also very good. I doubled the garlic, used finely crush dried rosemary and sprinkled with some garlic salt after pouring on the tomato sauce. I suggest you keep a thermumeter in the meat and keep an eye on it. Everyone's oven is a little different. 4 hours would have been way past well done for my roast. This is a fabulous roast for Sunday supper! I'll do it again and again..rave reviews from the family. Garlic, Italian herbs, cayenne, salt and olive oil on baby red potatoes is a great compliment..put into oven last hour of lamb roast. EASY and elegant - 29 Sep 2008
Well I suspended disbelief and poured the 400 ml passata over the lamb before putting in the oven, and unfortunately I got what I feared ... a burnt mess at the bottom of my roasting pan and a charred tomatoey crust on the meat. No one else seems to have had an issue with this, so maybe I'm missing something here :/ - 17 Jul 2014
This really is a special dish. It made my apartment smell so good, and I had my mother-in-law asking for the recipe.... that's how cooking should be! - 29 Sep 2008
