- Rub salt, pepper and oil all over the lamb.
- With a small sharp knife, make a dozen small incisions all over the lamb. Poke a sprig of rosemary through a sliver of garlic and insert in the slits in the meat.

- Pour roughly ¼ of the sauce over the meat and marinate, covered, for about 6 hours.
- Store the remainder of the sauce in the fridge until the meat is cooked.
- Before roasting, allow your meat to come to room temperature. Then pre-heat your oven to 200˚C.
- Roast the marinated lamb for about an hour turning once until cooked to medium, or to your preferred doneness.
- Remove the lamb from the oven and allow to stand for 20 minutes. Take the remaining chimichurri sauce out of the fridge and leave to come to room temperature.
- Carve meat and place on a warm plate with the remainder of the chimichurri sauce drizzled all over the lamb.
