Jerked Lamb Roast with Black Beans and Rice

Serves 6 Prep Time 12 hours   Cook Time 1 hours   Rated:


Well, when you need meat....this is definitely the way to go! This recipe appears in my Cooking with Tenina cookbook, which you should all have by now!! (Given that Santa had it on top of his list for a LOT of people!)

It will feed quite the crowd which is handy throughout the summer months. Just make sure you load up the sides with plenty of salad, coleslaw, and those rice and beans can go for miles if you add in more veggies. Perfect for the paleoists amongst us...or those who just love a good bit of charred meat. Hands up??

Place Jerk Spice Mix, onion, garlic, parsley, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, olive oil and salt into Thermomix bowl and blend 20 sec/speed 8.


Place the lamb into a ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Rub it into the meat and allow it to marinate in the fridge for 4 hours or longer if possible.


Remove lamb from bag; reserve the liquid. Place lamb into a paper lined Varoma dish or tray and set aside.


Drain the soaking black beans and place into simmering basket with the rice. Pour water over until you can just see it through the beans and rice. Tip the remaining marinade on top of this mixture.


Set the Varoma with the lamb into position and steam 25 min/Varoma/speed 4.


Remove the lamb and continue to cook the beans and rice 20 min/100°C/speed 4.


Meanwhile, place the lamb onto a baking tray and under a hot grill for at least 20-30 minutes until well blackened and charred. Remove and rest.


Combine all remaining ingredients into a large bowl and add the hot cooked beans and rice. Stir to combine.


Serve slices of lamb with the rice and beans, soft flour tortillas.


To char grill the corn, remove green outer layers and place into the naked flame of a gas burner or barbeque. Turn several times until kernels are charred and softened. Cut kernels from the cob to use.
