Method

  1. Rub salt, pepper and oil all over the lamb.
  2. 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.
  3. Blend the jar of Latasha’s Kitchen Green Chimichurri Sauce/Marinade with 200 ml olive oil and mint, until smooth and runny.
  4. Pour roughly ¼ of the sauce over the meat and marinate, covered, for about 6 hours.
  5. Store the remainder of the sauce in the fridge until the meat is cooked.
  6. Before roasting, allow your meat to come to room temperature. Then pre-heat your oven to 200˚C.
  7. Roast the marinated lamb for about an hour turning once until cooked to medium, or to your preferred doneness.
  8. 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.
  9. Carve meat and place on a warm plate with the remainder of the chimichurri sauce drizzled all over the lamb.
  10. Serve with, baby potatoes and a fresh crunchy salad made of tinned black beans, corn kernels, roasted (peeled) capsicums, roasted onions, diced avocado, roasted zucchini and roasted truss cherry tomatoes.
