Recipe's preparation

    Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Vegetables & Gravy
  1. 1. Add garlic, spring onions & rosemary to TMX bowl & chop 3sec / sp7.  Add oil & butter & saute 2mins / 100degrees / sp1 MC removed.

     

    2. Add wine, stock & water.  Into the Varoma base (tray removed) add root veges then place lamb on top (cut into 2 pieces if there is a 'flap' so that it sits flatter), making sure there are gaps for the steam to filter through the veges.  Steam 35mins / Varoma / sp2.

     

    3. Check to see how pink the meat is still.  If veges are tender, remove and place into a ThermoServer to keep warm.  If meat is done to your liking, remove also.  Otherwise, add peas and continue cooking, same settings, for a further 5-10mins. 

     

    4. Once meat is done to your liking, set the veges aside in a Thermoserver while you brown the lamb on both sides either on the BBQ or in a hot pan.

     

    5. While meat is browning, strain the gravy through your TM basket into another jug, discard the rosemary & onion pieces then return the gravy liquid to the TM bowl.  Insert buttefly, add the cornflour, vegemite and salt & pepper to taste and cook 6 mins / Varoma / sp2 or until thickened.

Tip

Steaming the lamb produces a very tender piece of meat. I have tried butterflied lamb on the BBQ (it tends to be a bit tough) and in the crockpot (it shrinks).  You don't have to brown it at the end, but it does bring out the flavours and looks less anaemic.

 

Experiment with different veges in season and according to your family's taste.  See EDC for aprox. steaming times and what size to cut them.

    Great recipe with a few adaptations for gravy. Thank you. 

    I actually put the strained out bits of herbs and onion back into the gravy, which helped thicken it up And added texture and taste.

    I have just updated the recipe to include a tsp of vegemite in the gravy, which I have been adding for extra colour & flavour lately.  You might want to adjust the amount of salt to taste.   Also, this will be more flavoursome if using TM meat stock, rather than vegetable.

    Don't forget to dissolve the cornflour before adding. The verges were perfect! I browned them for 5minutes in the hot oven while making the gravy and they were crispy and delicious.

  • Delicious Total Meal - Great

    Submitted by Deanna L on 20. July 2015 - 21:04.

    Delicious Total Meal - Great instructions for a simple total meal.

    Browned meat off a little, but mainly used pan with lid to keep warm while I fiddled with the gravy as a newbie.

    Would have liked a bit more red wine taste in the gravy, might try adding some extra at the last step next time.

    Accompanied by delicious Mulled Wine - great for winter's night!

  • Winning! First time ever

    Submitted by melanicca on 8. June 2015 - 15:16.

    Winning! First time ever cooking a leg of lamb and I was nervous, but so easy and so worth it. Thank you. Will definitely be cooking this again. The gravy was delicious too. I did add another 2 teaspoons of cornflour after straining it into my gravy boat and it thickened to our personal preference perfectly. So so delicious!

    Submitted by CBushy on 28. December 2014 - 21:22.

    Loved the ease of this recipe.  I didn't bother Browning the may and it was delicious.  My gravy didn't thicken up at all which was disappointing.  I ended up having to do it on the stovetop and added a tablespoon of Gravox to it As the cornflour just clumped. Bit overall the flavours were delicious and the meat tender. .. And it was super easy to prepare and cook!

    Really Delicious! Turned out great and the family loved it just the same as an Oven Roast! So much quicker and easier than a traditional roast and much healthier! I also quickly browned the root vegetables in the pan after the Lamb for extra Flavour! Thank you!
