This dinner serves four – A sumptuous lamb dinner that is out of this world.
Crispy Lemon -roasted potatoes go well with the rich tasty, delicious roasted leg of lamb and when you add a Greek salad to it, you have the perfect meal.
What You Need
A 4 pound leg of lamb. There will be lots of lamb left out which I will make a lamb stew to be posted soon.
4 large garlic cloves sliced.
3 tablespoons soya sauce.
7 tablespoons olive oil.
5 large potatoes.
2 teaspoons dry oregano.
1/2 cup beef stock.
16 cherry tomatoes.
4 mini cucumbers or 2 large ones.
1/2 red onion.
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar.
2 medium-sized pieces of Feta cheese.
Take your lamb and insert sliced garlic (four big cloves) into the meat by making small incisions in the meat with the edge of a sharp knife.
Then rub three tablespoons of soya sauce all over the meat.
Then take the same amount of olive oil and rub into the meat.
Place the meat into a pre-heated oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. This will make the lamb nice and brown on the outside.
After that reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and cook for 20 minutes per pound for medium rare. In this case that would total 50 minutes.
Also make sure to let the meat rest for 15 minutes by taking it out of the oven and covering it with foil.
Lemon roasted potatoes
Take the potatoes and cut up into small quarters.
Put into a roasting pan.
Douse with the juice of two lemons, sprinkle dry oregano over the potatoes about two teaspoons.
Add one half cup of beef stock into the mixture.
Add salt and pepper.
Take a wood spoon and mix up all the ingredients.
Put your potatoes in the oven at the same time as the lamb. They will be ready at the same time as the lamb.
Cut 16 cherry tomatoes in half and add to a salad bowl.
Cut up the cucumbers into regular slices.
Take half a red onion and slice thinly.
Use one green pepper, but any colour will do, and cut into small chucks.
Add everything into the salad bowl.
Season with salt and pepper.

Crumble up two regular-sized pieces of Feta cheese.
