Herb roast lamb Recipe


Leg of lamb
Garlic cloves
Fresh rosemary
Fresh thyme
Ground coriander
Red wine

Lightly oil top of lamb. Cut small slits into meat at intervals to suit, depending on how much garlic you like. Peel cloves & cut into slices, insert these into the slits. Break rosemary into peices & insert them into slits as well. Chop thyme finely and spread over meat, then sprinkle ground coriander over. Pour 1 cup red wine into baking dish with a little water. Bake as usual for size of roast, basting every now & then to get wine absorbed into meat.
I usually put meat on a stand (much like a cake rack) to reduce fat absorbtion.
If you like herbs a lot, use honey instead of oil & add more fresh herbs on top.
