    • Cooking time: 50 minutes to 60 minutes
    • Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes 60 minutes 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 2 Waitrose Solo Garlic Bulbs
    • 1tsp coarse sea salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • Juice of half a lemon
    • 4tbsp Waitrose Olive Oil
    • 1tbsp chopped fresh mint
    • 2tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
    • 1 Waitrose Welsh Lamb Boneless Shoulder
    • 700g potatoes, peeled and cut into 2.5cm dice
    • 150ml red wine
    • 125ml vegetable stock
    • 1tsp cornflour blended with a little cold water


    1. Crush 1 garlic bulb and the salt in a mortar with a pestle. Add the pepper, lemon juice, 2tbsp of olive oil, mint and 1tbsp of the rosemary. Mix together well. Press the mixture as far into the rolls of the lamb as possible. Place in a roasting tin and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
    2. Place the potatoes into a second roasting tin with the remaining olive oil and rosemary. Season well then toss to coat thoroughly. Put the remaining garlic bulb in the roasting tin with the lamb. Place the lamb and potatoes in a preheated oven 200°C, gas mark 6 for 50-60 minutes. Turn the potatoes occasionally until they are golden and crisp.
    3. Transfer the lamb to a carving board. Pour the excess fat from the roasting tin and place the tin on the hob. Squeeze the softened garlic into the tin. Pour in the wine and heat, scraping to remove the sediment from the tin. Allow to bubble and reduce by half. Stir in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Stir in the cornflour and simmer, stirring until thickened. Serve with the lamb and potatoes.
