Lamb recipes to try at home

Top tips for cooking lamb


  • Position the oven shelves so the lamb joint is in the centre of the oven.
  • Place the joint uncovered on a wire rack in a roasting tin ensuring any fat is on the top - this allows the juices to run down and baste the joint naturally.
  • When roasting lamb joints, the secret is to cook the joints in the oven on medium heat for slightly longer to ensure even cooking.
  • Remember to weigh lamb joints before calculating your preferred cooking time.


Grilling and barbecuing

  • Cooking under the heat: cook the food under a heated element such as a conventional electric or gas grill.
  • Cooking over the heat: brush the meat lightly with oil and ensure that the grill rack is pre-heated. Place the grill rack over gas or charcoal grill or barbecue.
  • Cooking between heat: place the meat between heated grill bars.


Casseroling, stewing and braising

There are two methods of preparation:

  • All the meat, vegetables and liquid are added to a large pan or ovenproof casserole dish. Cover and cook for the recommended time.
  • The traditional 'sealing' method is where the meat and vegetables are browned in a little oil then the remaining ingredients are added.
