One meal I should really make more often is the classic roast. For although it seems like it would take a bit of effort, the truth is it doesn’t. Rather, it is all about getting a good cut of meat (for which our lovely butcher never fails to deliver), adding a few extra ‘flavours’ then leaving it to roast in the oven for a couple hours.
Over the weekend, I was so inclined, turning to Jamie Oliver’s “Save with Jamie” and his mothership roast lamb.
I picked up a lovely lamb shoulder from our butcher…
Then turned to our backyard rosemary bush for the ‘flavour’.
Garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary – muddled….
The result? Tender, falling off the bone lamb, and caramelised onions that we soon turned into gravy.
Finished with a pile of roasted vegetables and peas, some fresh sourdough…
And our Saturday night roast dinner was complete.
Yes, my friends, I do love a good roast dinner!
What about you? Are roast dinners a regular in your household?
