Farm Table Roast Leg of Lamb

A roast is one of our ultimate comfort meals, a chance to enjoy the product of our labour. This is the way we cook it at home. Our Marybrook Premium Produce lamb boxes give you back legs cut in half so it's a approachable size even for a week night!


Half leg of Marybrook Premium Produce lamb

Handful of rosemary sprigs

6 cloves of garlic

½ cup olive oil

Assorted seasonal vegetables, including roasting potatoes

For Gravy:

Roasting pan juices


Water from the steamed vegetables


Preheat your oven to 230c. Cut a few slits into the lamb, and then taking a few short springs of rosemary and peeled garlic, stuff them into the holes. Lay the meat on a bed of a dozen or so extra-long sprigs of rosemary. Rub olive oil over the lamb and pour the remaining oil into the tray. Then, place it in the oven for 25 mins at high heat so that the meat seals on the outside, before turning the oven down to 180C and cooking for 20 mins per 450g.

Resting the meat once out of the oven is essential. At the very least for 10 minutes before carving. Take the roast out of the roasting pan and place it onto a carving tray, leaving it covered in alfoil. If you’ve cooked all of the veg in the same pan as the roast take them out and place them into another ovenproof dish and pop that back into the oven, having turned it back up to 230c. Your potatoes will have that all important outer crispness.

Turning to the gravy, mix the juices from your covered roast with the liquid in the roasting tray and place the roasting pan on a very low heat over your burner. I’m not going to lie, I do use a little Gravox to thicken my gravy but the key ingredients for making great gravy are the unctuous roasting pan remnants, and if you’ve lightly boiled or steamed seasonal veg, the leftover water. Use about ¾ cup of the vegie water to lift the stuck-on bits from the bottom of the pan. Once that’s done add about ½ cup of Gravox. Use a whisk and keep going until there are no lumps and it’s starting to thicken. If not thick enough, add a bit more Gravox. If it’s too thick, add a bit more vegie water. I make way more gravy than required because I use this as my stock for other dishes. Pour it into a jug and you’re ready to go.

Hopefully, someone has carved the roast and poured you a glass of wine while you’ve been making the gravy. Pull your vegies from the oven and away you go. Serve with a hearty cauliflower and broccoli cheese in winter or your favourite salads in summer.
