Mini lamb roast

Mini Lamb Roast Citrus Baby Carrots And New Potatoes

This is a delicious all in one mini lamb roast with baby carrots and new potatoes tossed in a citrus and herb mix. This is often described as a “mini roast” which is simply a smaller joint of lamb weighing somewhere between 300-500g. They are a great choice if you are looking to feed two people. The smaller size means that it will cook quickly and be ready in 40 minutes to an hour. The mini roast is ideal for a midweek supper.

Cooking Method For Mini Lamb Roast

1. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.

2. In a small bowl mix together the oil, orange juice, thyme, garlic and Chinese 5 spice.

3. Put the vegetables in a large non-stick roasting tin, season and spoon over half the citrus mixture. Lightly shake the pan which will coat the vegetables with the mixture and to spread them out evenly.

4. Place the joint on a chopping board, make several slits over the surface and season well with salt and pepper. Place the lamb on top of the vegetables and roast for 25-30 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven, spoon the remaining citrus mixture around the vegetables and brush the marmalade over the joint and vegetables. Return to the oven and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it to make sure it is browning not burning.

6. Remove from the oven with the vegetables and transfer to a warm plate, cover with foil and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes. Carve the lamb and serve with the vegetables.

7. Enjoy!
