- 5 spring onions
- 1 clove garlic
- 50 grams Butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2-3 sprigs rosemary, fresh
- 120 grams red wine
- 1/2-1 tbsp TM veg or meat stock concentrate
- 750 gram water
- 2 tablespoons cornflour
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 tsp vegemite (optional)
- 1 butterflied leg of lamb aprox 1.2kg, (ask your butcher to debone a leg or buy one ready-marinated e.g. from Harris Farm or Woolies)
- mixed herbs of choice if marinating your own, eg. mint, oregano, rosemary, parsley
- 10 baby potatoes, washed & halved
- 1 sweet potato, peeled & cut into pieces the same size as potato
- 150 grams frozen peas
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.
Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Vegetables & Gravy
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.
