  • When oven time is up, remove roaster from oven & rest for another 15 minutes but DO NOT remove lid (rice is still cooking).
  • When rice is in oven, prepare the lamb by mixing with thyme & rosemary.
  • Season & brown lamb gently & break it into pieces about the size of a clove of garlic. When rice is rested, add lamb & peas & mix through with a fork, fluffing rice as you look to remove the bay leaf.
