Italian Crusted Lamb Roast

Serves 6-8 Prep Time 4 hours   Cook Time 45 minutes   Rated:

Just another great family roast! (You're welcome!)

With the use of the Varoma to pre-steam the roast, you will find it is packed with flavour and juiciness. Finishing it off with a high heat gives us the caramelisation we all crave with a roast then add all the usual favourites! Crunchy roast potatoes, pumpkin, and steamed greens, carrots and so on. Ladle up the gravy...the entire family is happy!

(Can you ever go wrong with pesto and lamb? We don't think so!)

Then we think you should try some of our other family style roasts;

Perfect Roast Pork

Crispy Skinned Roast Chicken

Turmeric and Chilli Roast Lamb

Salt Crusted Roast Beef

Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken

Steamed and Roasted Christmas Turkey with Gravy
