This is a really (and I mean really) easy and delicious way to prepare a roast. It can apply to any kind of meat- lamb, chicken, pork, beef, etc... Also, since garlic applies to most cuisines, the leftovers are fabulous if they're chopped and then added to anything from leftover curries to spaghetti sauce.


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C.
  2. With a small, sharp knife, make a few stabs into the meat. Rub salt and pepper liberally all over roast.
  3. Crush garlic. Smear all over roast, trying to get as much as you can into the crevices created by the knife, as well as the natural crevices.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil, and roast for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Let stand for 10 minutes, then carve and serve.
