Freshly prepared by our award-winning butchers, this Whole Leg of Lamb Leg is ready to roast – cook it ‘low and slow’ and enjoy succulent, tender and richly flavoured meat, perfect for a family dinner.
Greendale lamb comes from our own flock of breeding ewes, which are predominantly traditional breeds such as Suffolk's and continental X's. After enjoying spring and summer grazing on the rich pasture at our East Devon farm, our lambs are carefully selected when they reach the correct weight - they travel just eight miles to a local abattoir, the short journey helping to keep stress to a minimum. Hung for a minimum of ten days, the meat becomes even more flavoursome and tender. Our master butchers then prepare it on-site at Greendale Farm Shop, skilfully turning it into plump chops, classic roasts, burgers, meatballs and much, much more.
A versatile cut, Leg of Lamb is comparatively lean, though it still contains enough fat to ensure the meat remains succulent when roasted. This whole leg contains the bone, which will further enhance the flavour and help to distribute heat evenly during cooking.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6), and allow the Leg of Lamb to come up to room temperature. Then, put the lamb in a roasting tin, cover loosely with foil and place on the middle shelf of the hot oven. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and leave the lamb to roast for another hour (for medium), or for longer if you prefer the meat to be well done. When the lamb is cooked to your liking, remove it from the oven and leave it to rest in the tin for 10 minutes before carving (you can keep it warm with a foil ‘lid’).
Store in fridge and consume within 2-3 days of receipt, or freeze immediately. Suitable for freezing. All items are labelled with use by dates.
