The Perfect Lamb Roast

I love Sundays and I especially love Sundays when I am surrounding by amazing friends and family.

Last Sunday we had a few friends over for a roast with some yummy salads and baked veges.

This roast recipe was originally inspired by my husband’s best mate Benny. Many times we have enjoyed this meal sitting around a spit fire with a few quiet drinks.

With a few tweaks of my own I wanted to share this with you, so you too can enjoy.


This meal is best enjoyed surrounded by your loved ones- laughing at jokes, reminiscing and enjoying each other’s company.


Serve this with my cinnamon, turmeric and paprika baked vegetables and a fresh salad.

Tip: Check meat at 1.5hrs by slicing a deep cut into the meat, if the juice is still bloody it needs more time. If you check it again and the juice runs clear the meat is ready. Be careful not to over-cook the meat as you do not want it to be too dry.


Enjoy xx
