What do I need?

For the Lamb

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C
  2. Scatter the half the thyme and half the lemon zest on a large tray. Unroll the lamb (reserving any elasticated meat bands) and coat each side with the rosemary.  Leave skin side down and season.
  3. To prepare stuffing; in a small bowl mix the pilau rice with the remaining thyme, lemon and other stuffing ingredients, mix well and spread evenly over the lamb. Roll up and secure with butcher’s string or reserved elasticated meat bands. Weigh the lamb and calculate the cooking time.
  4. Place on a metal rack in a large non-stick roasting tin, drizzle with the oil and roast in a preheated oven for the preferred, calculated cooking time. Cover with foil if browning too quickly.
  5. Remove the joint from the oven, transfer to a large plate, cover and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Serve with seasonal vegetables and gravy.
