Large (2kg+) lamb leg butterflied (ask the butcher to do it for you!)

2 large lemons, one juiced and one sliced

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary + 2 sprigs for the pan

3 tbsp smoked paprika

5 cloves garlic

For Gravy:

Pan juices from the roasting pan

Knob of butter

2 tbsp plain flour

2 cups boiling water


2 tbsp Chicken Bone Broth Homestyle Original

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Take the lamb out of the fridge about an hour before you want to cook it to let it come to temperature ideal for cooking. 
  3. Mix together your spices, lemon juice and olive oil and give your lamb a shiatsu massage with the mix - getting into all the nooks and crannies that the butterflied lamb provides.
  4. On a high heat, sear lamb well on both sides (about 4 mins each side). 
  5. Then take a sharp knife and stab some holes randomly into the lamb.
  6. Fill holes with garlic and rosemary sprigs (be careful lamb is probably a bit hot).
  7. Lay the lemon slices in a baking tray and top with the lamb. We baked the lamb folded in half - but if you have a big enough baking tray you can bake flat. 
  8. Bake for approx 60-90mins (depending on how rare you like your lamb - see notes for internal temps).
  9. Rest for at least 20 mins prior to slicing - while resting make the gravy.
  10. Remove the lemon slices from the pan juices and add to a medium saucepan along with the Chicken Bone Broth powder and butter.
  11. Heat until bubbling and whisk in flour, cook for 2-3 mins (to cook the flour off).
  12. Whisk in water and cook for 10 minutes or until your desired thickness
  13. Slice lamb.
  14. Serve hot gravy along with sliced lamb and watch it disappear in record timing.
