Lazy Sunday . . . Roast Lamb

In my aim to eat only free range meat, last Lazy Sunday we indulged in a Harmony Foods  seasoned Lamb.

Absolutely delicious and 'guilt free'. I have to admit that I had always made the assumption that lamb and beef in NZ would of course be free range . . . but apparently not! 

As Lamb is pretty expensive here, this was a bit of a treat. However, I was surprised to find that the free range meat at The Good Food Trading Company (my local favourite at the moment) is what I would think of as comparable to supermarket meat prices.

So here is the lamb . . .

Before:


And After:


Ta Da!



I made up a batch of onion gravy, which I love and is super easy. It doesn't have to be complicated like a lot of the recipes I've seen for this are.

I just dice two large onions and brown off in a pan along with garlic and rosemary:


Gradually add a cup and a half of vege stock, season with salt and pepper and leave to simmer for a bit - as little or long as you like (until roast meat and vege are just about ready to eat):

 
Before whizzing in the food processor with a roast potato to thicken it up a little. Easy as that!


That, along with roast potatoes and fresh steamed green beans were the perfect accompaniment for a Lazy Sunday Lamb Roast.


Just lovely!
