    Shazzie's Note:

    Very herby and succulent with garlic and lemon and the added bonus of "dripped-on" golden-brown potato slices. From the BBC Food program 'French Cooking at Home'. Cooking time stated is approximate as it depends on the size of the joint and your preferred 'doneness'.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 500°F.
    2. 2
      Use an oven pan while you are preparing the joint (you will remove the joint from the pan when you place it in the oven).
    3. 3
      Pierce leg all over and insert slivers of garlic.
    4. 4
      Mix lemon juice, salt and pepper, and olive oil and wipe all over the joint (use your hands).
    5. 5
      Pat the herbs all over the joint forming a 'crust'.
    6. 6
      Lay potato slices in another oven pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
    7. 7
      Toss around (again, using your hands is easier) to ensure the slices are well coated, and pour over the beef stock.
    8. 8
      Place uncovered joint directly onto the oven shelf/grid, with the oven pan of potates below, i.e. allowing lamb juices to drip down into the potatoes.
    9. 9
      Roast for 20 minutes, then reduce oven heat to 325°F.
    10. 10
      Total roasting time will depend on the size of the joint as follows:.
    11. 11
      Medium-rare : 20-25 minutes per pound plus an additional 20 minutes;.
    12. 12
      Well-done : 25-30 minutes per pound plus an additional 25 minutes.
    13. 13
      Notes re Herbs de Provence - a mixture of dried herbs - there is a recipe here on Zaar (Herbes De Provence); although many make their own blends, leaving out the lavendar and/or adding marjoram, for example.
