Print Friendly and PDF

This delicious roast lamb dish was requested by Mandi, so here it is! Try it and I'm sure you'll like it!


1 kg leg of lamb in 6 portions
2 carrots
4 medium potatoes
2 small onions
2 medium tomatoes
6 garlic cloves
100 ml olive oil
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon thyme
Salt and pepper

12 square sheets of greaseproof paper – approx 30cm x 30cm


Dice the carrots. Cut the potatoes into thick slices. Slice the onions and cut the tomatoes into 12 slices.

Put all the ingredients, apart from the tomatoes, into a mixing bowl and mix well.

Place 2 sheets of the non-grease paper on your work surface.

In the middle of the paper place 1/6 of the ingredients in the following order: potatoes, lamb, garlic, onion and the tomato on top.

Add salt and pepper and a spoonful of the juice from the mixture.

Bring the four corners of the paper together and tie it well with string so that it looks like a pouch (see photo above).

Repeat this process another 5 times so that you have 6 pouches.

Place them in a covered oven dish and roast in a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees Celsius for 2 hours.

In the photo below you can see what each portion looks like after roasting. This is then served on a dish.
