Instructions

  • Prepare the marinade by processing all the ingredients together
  • Open up the lamb roast and use a knife to fan out the meat
  • Add salt and some of the jerk marinade and rub it into the meat on both sides
  • Prepare the filling by heating some oil and sautéing the onion and garlic
  • Add the spring onion bulbs, carrots, red peppers and spring onion leaves
  • Add some salt and the jerk sauce and mix
  • Take it off the heat and also the filling to cool
  • Once cool add some of the filling in the centre and roll the meat
  • Secure with butcher’s twine, this is called trussing, look at the technique in my video
  • Stab the roast with a small knife, and add the slices of garlic in
  • Add this to a preheated oven and add the roast to an oven proof dish
  • Sear on one side and after about 20 mins flip over and sear the other side
  • I’m going to flip it back over and add the bay leaves, thyme, sliced onion, more oil if you need, and stick it back in the oven
  • Cook the Lamb in total for 45 - 60 mins depending on how much you want it cooked
