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!

Ingredients

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
String

Preparation

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.


Eat and Enjoy!

Looks delicious. What kind of paper, exactly - baking paper or greaseproof or plain brown? Or aluminium foil, even? Just need to know before I burn something LOL!
