I never seem to get time to make roast lamb very often any more, so it has become a Christmas tradition in our family. The recipe is easy and creates a wonderful main meat.

Serves: 6 

  • 1 bone in leg of lamb
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon mint
  • 1/3 cup of oil

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour15min  ›  Extra time:12hours marinating  ›  Ready in:13hours25min 

  1. Trim any excessive fat from the leg of lamb and find a plastic zip-lock bag it will fit in.
  2. Combine the pepper, salt, garlic powder, mint and oil. rub into the lamb then place the lamb and any remaining oil-herb mix into the bag. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
  4. Place the lamb in a roasting tray and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 160 degrees C then cook for an additional 45 minutes or until the lamb is cooked to your preference.
