Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Turkish bread or roast thinly sliced pumpkin or baby carrots with the lamb.TIP: To check if your lamb mini roasts are ready, press the centre of the outside of each roast using tongs. If it’s rare it will feel soft, while medium will feel springy. Well done meat will feel firm.
