How to Cook Oh So Simple Roast Lamb
- Peel and very thinly slice the garlic. With a sharp, pointed knife, pierce the outside of the lamb at regular intervals to a depth of about ½" (1cm) and push the slivers of garlic into the gaps created. Season the lamb well with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then squeeze the juice from one of the lemons and rub it on the outside of the lamb.
- Place the lamb in a large ovenproof casserole dish or Dutch oven. Add the white wine, and the second lemon, cut into four. Cover and cook in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for 90 minutes if you like your lamb pink, or 2 hours if you prefer your lamb well cooked. Remove the lid and brush the meat with the redcurrant jelly. Cook for a further 30 minutes, uncovered.
- Remove from the oven and allow to stand in a warm place for 10 minutes before carving. Serve with Roast Potatoes, buttered broccoli and peas.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
You can cook your roast potatoes at the same time as your lamb. After 30 minutes cooking the lamb, place the casserole in the lower half of the oven (the coolest part) and increase the oven to Mk 7 - 425ºF - 220ºC, then follow the recipe for Roast Potatoes using the top half of the oven.

You just can't go wrong with this recipe. It's too easy to fail. And the taste with the brushed on redcurrant jelly is excellent. If you're looking for a "go to" lamb roast, this is the one. Perfect!
