angela's greek lamb

I love sunday night cooking! This simple authentic greek feast is definitely worth the 3 hour wait, and is the perfect way to top off a weekend.

No measurements with this one - you just have to feel it :)

20 mins prep time
3 hours cooking time

leg of lamb
olive oil
fresh lemon juice
garlic bulbs
dried oregano
salt & pepper


trim any excess fat off the leg of lamb & rub it with olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and salt & pepper . make slits & insert garlic bulbs . leave to marinate for as long as possible - overnight at best . place into baking tray, cover with foil and pop into oven at 250°C . after one hour cooking, reduce heat to 200°C and add more olive oil and lemon juice . cut veges into big chunks and marinate in olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and salt & pepper . cover with foil and add to oven once the lamb has been cooking for one and a half hours . remove foil from lamb and veges after a further hour . everything will really crisp up in the last 30 minutes of cooking . remove from oven and let lamb rest for 10 minutes . serve with lemon .

απολαύσετε | enjoy!
