Slow Roast Leg of Lamb

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by Peter J

Variation of a recipe I found on the ABC site. They included a serving suggestion but there are plenty of great sauces on RecipeZaar so I omitted that section. Personally I served with Yoghurt and Mint Chutney but thought I'd leave this as an easy to prepare basic techique you can adapt yourself.

I skipped the water and oil but added white pepper - and cooked it at 305 for 2 1/2 hours. I can't believe how delicious it tasted. This recipe was extremely easy and quick to prepare. This was the first time I ever cooked a lamb leg without garlic and rosemary. It didn't at all taste like cumin. This will be my recipe from now on.
