Add a touch of class to your roast lamb with a slug of SLOEmotion SLOE Gin and freshly chopped mint.Prep time: 10 min            Cooking time: 3 hrs            Serves: 4-6Ingredients:

  • 1 x 1.3 kg leg of lamb
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped mint
  • 2 large red onions, quartered
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 150 ml SLOEmotion SLOE Gin

 

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Place the joint on a chopping board and make several slashes over the surface with a sharp knife, taking care not to cut the meat bands or butcher’s string. Season with salt and black pepper then stuff the mint into the slits.

 

  1. Put the onions into the base of a large non-stick roasting tin and rest the joint on top. Drizzle with the olive oil then add the SLOE Gin. Cover with foil and cook in the oven for 2½-3 hours, basting occasionally.

 

  1. During the last 30 minutes of the cooking time, remove the foil to allow the joint to brown. Once cooked, transfer the lamb to a warm plate, cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

 

  1. Meanwhile, remove any excess oil from the juices in the roasting tin, strain and serve with the lamb, seasonal vegetables and roast potatoes.
