Slow Roated Lamb leg

Slow roasted lamb leg is considered as one of Australian classic dish. This dish is pretty easy to prepare and ultra tender when it’s done. I am sure you will find it very easy and delicious too. Once you marinate it and put in the oven or slow cooker, you can have a two hours break doing something different.

My kids love this comfort dish especially with gravy souce. The tenderness of the lamb, it juicy meat, and the beautiful flavour from rosemary , thyme , springs and garlic cloves. Besides that you can add some, olive oil , dijon mustard and some French butter. Use your fingers or brush to robe your spices

To make it a complete meal, it must be accompanied with pumkin, potatoes, sweet potatoes and some carrots . All these are carefully washed and diced. Placed in a baking pan and garnished with some salt and butter then it goes straight to the oven.

Lamb is very nutritive , it contains iron and Zinc includingbvitamin B12 and in addition, it contains thw healthy Omega 3 which is found in fish. This is a pipular delicious goodness for most Australian families.
