Stuffed Leg of Lamb

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by JNS381

A very tasty variation on roast lamb with flavour of the Mediterranean. No need to use a boned leg ! The stuffing on the surface becomes crisp while the meat stays juicy inside. So tasty you won't need gravy !

Absolutely superb! A very impressive recipe. The stuffing is so easy to prepare and while it is a little fiddly tying the leg to hold the stuffing it is very much worth the effort. One of the best meat dishes we have eaten. Fantastic cooked in a Webber BBQ or in the oven where it maid yummy gravy. Well done and thankyouso much !

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 200°C.
  2. Hold the lamb with the flesh side towards you and cut slices about 2cm apart through to the bone-a bit like cutting chops but not through the bone.
  3. Mix the fresh bread crumbs parsley, garlic, capers, anchovies, lemon rind and oil.
  4. Using your hands, place stuffing between the slices.
  5. Tie the leg with string to hold the slices together-this can be a bit tricky, a spare pair of hands makes it easier.
  6. Scatter rosemary over the leg.
  7. Place in a baking dish and cook at 180 C for about 2 hours.
  8. When you carve, instead of slices you end up with tasty, chunky fingers of lamb.
  9. Enjoy !
