Greek style roast lamb!

Post by Orlandith »

1. Sprinkle the lamb with black pepper, salt, lemon and garlic. Leave the lamb marinated for 15-20 minutes.
2. Prepare potatoes with skin on, cut in half or quarter size.
3. Stir fry potatoes with garlic, some butter and olive oil.
4. Prepare pan for roasting/baking.
5. Put and arrange the fried potatoes inside the baking pan.
6. Add olive, cuts of lemon and thyme on top of the fried potatoes.
7. Stir fry the lamb - just enough to get the outside crispy.
8. Put the fried lamb on top of the potatoes (in the roasting/baking pan).
9. Add cuts of thyme again on top of the fried lamb.
10. Preheat oven for 10 mins around 250 degree C and roast the lambs with potatoes for about 30-45 minutes.

Ready to serve!

Btw, my wife loved it with a glass of wine :)

Thanks Wreckers for the fabulous suggestion.

Here're some pictures.

Absolutely! We don't eat much roasted food though, but it has certainly become one of the chosen recipes now for special occasions :)

Mmm...I'm not really a big fan of mustard, but roast beef really sounds great. I'll probably go with chicken next, then beef. Maybe roasted curry chicken :)

Oh yeah it was very munchable indeed! The lamb was very soft, sweet and juicy. We ate the dish with a bit of rice served on the side. Would prefer bread, but too lazy to buy them :P
