    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas mark 2.
    2. Generously salt and pepper lamb. Smear the mustard all over the lamb and sprinkle it with a fine coating of flour. Place lamb in a roasting tin and place slices of garlic over top. Sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce to taste.
    3. Roast uncovered in the preheated oven until desired doneness. About 20 minutes per 500g for a pink roast. Remove from tin to a heated platter. Use the dripping to make a gravy with a little flour and water. Season with salt and pepper.

    Perfect. Not really tweaked, I like strong flavours and added a bit more mustard but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter.  -  22 Jul 2013


    I tried this with lamb shoulder, works perfectly. I can highly recommend trying this recipe  -  30 Nov 2013


    Fantastic!!! This recipe came out great. I used a honey dijon mustard and added the Worcestershire sauce to the mustard before spreading it on the leg. I also added parsley, rosemary, and garlic powder under the mustard. Even my family members who said they do not like lamb, loved this recipe. Plus it was SO easy.
