How long to cook your roast for:
Roast according to how you prefer your meat done below:
Medium Rare = 1.25 hours
Medium = 1.5 hours
Well Done = 1.75 hours
The shank (the pointy bit) will cook faster than the rest of the roast, to prevent over-browning, cover with aluminium foil to protect it. When the lamb is done the way you like it, remove from the oven, cover in foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Recipe Hints and Tips:
- Serve with roast vegetables, classic potato bake or homemade gravy.
