Our oven ready lamb roast from Deli-Co in the Western Cape has a wonderful flavour and cooking slowly results in tender meat that melts in the mouth.

For perfect medium rare lamb, 15 to 20 minutes per 500g, 25-30 minutes per 500g for medium and 30-35 minutes per 500g if you like it well done in a 160°C oven is a good rule of thumb.  Fresh herb and spice rubs add layers of flavor, and can transform the versatile leg from skewers for the grill to a whole roast.
