How to make the easiest roast leg of lamb or mutton:
(mutton has more flavour, so we prefer it, you just have to cook it a bit longer than lamb to get it nice and tender)
- Rub the meat with 2 teaspoons of salt and some black pepper.
- Place in a roasting dish and pour 1 1/2 cups of water around the meat. Crush 2 cloves of garlic and slice an onion and scatter over the meat along with 3 twigs of rosemary and 7 whole cloves.
- Cover and place in the oven at 180’C for 2-3 hours until the meat looks completely irresistible.
