When you ask people to think about food from the Karoo, the first thing most would come up with is Karoo lamb. It’s because of this that we share with you a recipe for Karoo Leg of lamb, slow-cooked in Thornsprings pizza oven.
Take a Leg of Lamb
20ml Coarse Salt & Pepper
20ml Cajun Spice
100ml Olive Oil
Combine the salt & pepper, cajun and olive oil and rub into the lamb
Sit for 20 minutes
1 Sachet Tomato Puree
20ml Brown Sugar
1 Tin Tomato Onion Relish
2 Cups of Red Wine
1 Cup of Water
Combine tomato puree, tomato onion relish, brown sugar, red wine, and water and pour over the lamb.
Sprinkel with more salt and pepper
2 Large Onions
1 Garlic Clove
Bunch of Fresh Rosemary & Thyme
Place garlic, onions, and fresh herbs on top of lamb
Cover and place in a pre-heated pizza oven until soft and tender – be careful not to have it on top or too close to the coals or the fire – as the oven will generate enough heat.
Serve with loads of fresh thyme – and enjoy 😉
