Slow-Roasted Garlic and Thyme Leg of Lamb with Parsnips


Ingredients

  • 1 yellow onion, cut into 1⁄2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 bone-in leg of lamb (about 6 pounds)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 parsnips, peeled

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Scatter the onion slices across the sheet pan, breaking them up to separate the rings from one another. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil to coat.

Rub the lamb leg with 1 tablespoon of the oil and then coat with the thyme, garlic, and lemon zest. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Place the meat atop the onion slices. Bake uncovered for 21⁄2 to 3 hours.

Cut the parsnips into 1⁄2-inch-thick spears. Toss with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Season generously with salt and pepper. In the final hour of cooking, place the parsnips atop the onion slices and return the pan to the oven.

Use an instant-read thermometer to gauge doneness on the meat: 125 degrees to 130 degrees F indicates medium rare, and 130 degrees to 135 degrees F indicates medium. Serve the lamb with the parsnips.

Slow roasted Greek lamb

Slow roasted lamb is synonymous with Easter and this succulent Greek lamb cooked with potatoes, garlic and rosemary is going to become a family favourite in no time. Slow roasting the lamb in wine and stock allows the meat to become fall-apart tender and results in a rich delicious gravy to pour over the lamb when serving. The potatoes suck up all those glorious flavours from the lamb, garlic, rosemary and wine. They are so good, your guests will be begging for more.

I used the gorgeous oval casserole in the beautiful new colour, Meringue, from Le Creuset. There is just no better cookware to use (I literally use my Le Creuset casseroles daily) but this oval casserole is a dream for roasts and slow braises. And how gorgeous is that colour? Creamy and luscious, just like a perfect meringue. Click Here to check out the rest of the range. Everything from enamelled cast iron cookware to beautiful stoneware to complete your kitchen.
