How would you cook a piece of lamb??

As the title really!

I've got half a leg, with the bone still in it and Ive got no idea how to cook it!

I've got a chicken down there too and I was just going to bung them both in the oven, as I want to cook them both at the same time.

So what stuff should I put on it? herbs? spices? S&P? and how longs best to cook it? lol

I haven't got any anchovies and all that!

cheers!

    salt, pepper and some rosemary. take a look on bbc.co.uk/food and uktvfood.co.uk for some great recipes, there are so many you wont know where to start.

    TBH, with lamb, im happy with salt, pepper, chilli powder and rose mary.

    you dont need to do too much with it as its got a lovely natural taste to it like a steak. things like poultry are pretty bland but as for meat, not much is needed for lamb or beef.

    roast it in the oven bud.

    some veg, yorks, gravy, pint of guinness and youre sorted.

    here is a fairly straight forward recipe, very few ingredients too http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/roastlegofspringlamb_11539.shtml

    lamb is great, as long as you dont burn it, its going to taste great. massive flavour

    sweet guys, thanks. gonna try yours stone, with the chilli powder. haven't got any rosemary though, feck

    have to have a look down the shop..

    how long do you reckon I should cook it for? in a preheated oven at 180? its been on for ages, I forgot about it!

    on a cut mate, so just an assload of vege and a bit of gravy baby!

    can you make gravy out of the juices aswell?!

    depends how big it is and how big the size of the bone is. the bone also cooks the meat surrounding it.

    i cook mine slowly so it can take anywhere from just over an hour or longer, depends on the size. if youve got the patience and time, cook it on a low, say gas mark 5 and check how it is after say a half hour.

    yeah, go down the shop, get some mint sauce as well like dean mentioned.

    1 or 2 yorks would be alright as well bud, youll enjoy the meal just that bit more.

    of course you can make gravy from the juices. is there any other way of making decent gravy?

    im actually feeling really hungry now with all this talk, popping into miso in a bit anyway.

    personally i'd load up my L1A1 SLR and head up the hills, once i bagged a couple of lambs i'd take out my knife and proceed to skin it, gut all its intesitines out and bury them. I'd collect the blood in a tin for later. I'd then stick a stick up its arse and out its mouth and slowly roast it over an open fire. once the eyes pop out i'd know its ready so i'd proceed to carve peice of its flesh off and eat them.


    Edit:I'd use the skin and bits of sinew to fashion a pair of warm mittens.

    wont work dude, you wil need to hang it for a couple of weeks. pop the leg you have in the oven as per the instructions in the link i gave you. while its roasting do what dave suggests above up to the part where he sticks the thing in the lambs arse, instead of that bring it home and hang it in the shed (upside down is best) until this day two weeks and then repeat as per the the instructions in the link

    cheers mate, its only a small piece about 6-700g's

    well, ive been to the shop and they had no rosemary!

    so with the lamb, salt and pepper, chilli powder and mixed herbs lol - bit of a lame sub, but we'll see how it turns out!

    chicken, just some salt and pep, with garlic stuffed in pockets and olive oil

    will keep checking the lamb, but the chicken usually takes a good 3-4 hours

    arn't you supposed to seal the meat off first or something aswell?

    they're both in the oven wrapped in foil

    you could seal it but imo i dont think there is any need. if you have any garlic or onions lying aroud, half them and throw them in too. as i said before lamb needs little help to be delish.
