Stuffed Lamb Leg with Kipflers and Mint Jelly

Stuffed Lamb Leg with Kipflers and Mint Jelly

Preparation time:

20 mins

Cooking time:

1 hour 20 mins

Serves:

6 - 8

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 medium brown onion, finely chopped

  • 1 3/4 cups fresh breadcrumbs

  • Zest of one orange

  • 1/2 cup pistachio kernels, toasted

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint leaves

  • 1.5kg boned and rolled lamb leg

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil extra
  • 
2kg Kipfler potatoes, scrubbed but unpeeled
  • 
1 x jar of Beerenberg Mint Jelly

Method:

Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring for five minutes or until translucent. Add the breadcrumbs, orange zest and pistachios and cook for a few minutes more then remove from heat. 

Cut away the string from your lamb and place on a board. Press stuffing into the centre of the meat, pushing in as much as you can. Tie tightly with string, taking extra care to close up the filling. Place in a large roasting pan and surround with the kipfler potatoes. Rub meat with oil and drizzle a little extra olive oil over the potatoes. Season everything well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes (this should result in lovely pink meat). Remove lamb from the tray and set on a chopping board. Cover with foil then return the tray with the potatoes to the oven.

Let the lamb rest for 20 minutes while the potatoes get a final blast. Slice and serve with steamed beans, the potatoes and Beerenberg Mint Jelly. Yummo!
