Pot Roast Lamb With Red Wine Herbs and Veg

Total Time

I made this yesterday for my husband. i took inspiration for it from aunty mags santorini lamb recipe on zaar. I used a new enamel roaster tin that o got after searching charity shops/ second hand stores for a casserole dish. In the end I went to Argos and bought a huge enamel roaster that came with a free smaller one for £20 in the end my lamb actually fit into the free smaller pot ! winner! I used whatever herbs I had knocking about id dint have any fresh rosemary and was nearly out of dried mint but I did have some fresh oregano and some fresh mint and some dried sage etc. I would say to throw in whatever you have to be honest. I did use half a bottle of red wine but half way through I topped it up with the other half. I always feel bad when I have to use a whole bottle for a dinner so I bought myself a bottle so it was fair haha! I like recycling into another dish so I then made the leftovers of this into a Moroccan style dish which I will be posting later. I served this with my bacon and olive oil roast potatoes. Also my camera battery died before I could take picture of it cooked so I only have prep pics sorry! I also opened my thyme honey from my honey moon in Greece which tasted very good
