This quick sauce for a slow cooked leg of lamb came from a good friend of mine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the leg of lamb in a slow oven for 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients together.
  3. Pour this mix over the lamb, and cover with a lid or foil.
  4. Cook for a further 1 1/2 hours in a slow oven.
  5. Slice the meat thickly and serve with the sauce-it may need to be reduced a little before using.

Great flavours in this lamb roast. Very different to how we normally have a leg of lamb, but we love mushrooms and the idea of having a sauce as well was very appealing. The lamb was tender and it makes oodles of sauce, which was great because it was a perfect 'gravy' over the meat and mashed potatoes. Thanks for posting Jan. =)

As usual for me I generally try the recipe exactly as directed. Then the next time I modify according to taste. This recipie was no different except I put slivers of garlic in the lamb before roasting. The flavor overall was excellent. If I was to change one thing next time it would be simply to cut down the chicken broth. It called for 2 cups of chicken broth. That is about 1 1/3 10oz cans. I opened a second can but found I could have just used one can and still have plenty of liquid for gravy. I did have to reduce the gravy (as the recipe said might happen) after the lamb was done, as it was a bit thin. Over all however a tasty recipie. I served the gravy over a white rice with green beans (my favorite vegie!).
