ROAST LAMB NOISETTE

ROAST LAMB NOISETTE

Good Grocer lamb noisettes come expertly boned, trimmed, stuffed, tied and ready to cook. This very convenient mini roast is simple to cook and produces meat that is succulent, tender and wonderfully flavoursome.

Serves 2-3

1 x Good Grocer stuffed lamb noisette roast, at room temperature
NZ sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil
Fresh herb leaves, such as thyme or oregano, to garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Just before cooking, season the lamb all over with salt and pepper. 

2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan with an ovenproof handle, set over a medium-high heat. Add the rolled lamb to brown on all sides – this will take 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Place the pan in the oven (or if your frying pan does not have an ovenproof handle, transfer lamb to a roasting pan). Roast for 20 minutes for medium rare lamb, or 5-10 minutes longer, depending on your preference for pink meat.

4. Remove the lamb from the oven and transfer it to a carving board. Set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes, covered loosely with foil. Remove the string from the lamb. Carve the noisette into thick slices. Serve drizzled with the pan juices and garnished with herbs.
