Try this delicious lamb and tarragon recipe for a homely meal

YOU NEED:

  • 2kg lamb leg roast
  • 3 leeks, thinly sliced
  • 100g butter
  • 1 tbsp tarragon, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 250ml white wine
  • 1kg baby new potatoes
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 300ml lamb stock, from a cube
  • 25g mint, chopped
  • 2 tbsp capers

METHOD: Remove the lamb from the fridge one hour before cooking. Cook the leeks in half of the butter over a medium heat for ten minutes. Add the tarragon after five minutes.

Take leeks off heat and stir in the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Leave to cool. Preheat oven to 200C/gas 6. Cut four deep incisions in the lamb in between the string, so the lamb holds its shape.

Push the leek mixture in all the incisions and rub in thoroughly. Place remaining leeks on the base of a large roasting tray and put the lamb on top. Season well, and pour over the white wine. Cover with foil and cook for ten minutes at this temperature, before reducing the heat to 180C/gas 4.

Cook the lamb for two hours 20 minutes, removing the foil halfway through. Set the lamb aside to rest for 15 minutes, covered in foil. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes, according to on-pack instructions. Put the roasting tray over heat or transfer the juices to a pan.

Stir in some flour and cook for a minute, then add the stock. Bring to a simmer, stirring all the time. Check the seasoning.

To serve, melt remaining butter and stir in mint, capers and seasoning.
Spoon over potatoes. Carve lamb and serve with gravy.
