This is a very simple way to roast a piece of lamb and can be done on lamb steaks too. If you have fresh mint growing your garden brilliant, otherwise dried will do. I hope you enjoy this easy roast lamb.

2large handfulsfresh mint
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 140º degrees.
With the fresh mint lay 2 large handfuls on the bottom of the tray.
Take a garlic bulb and break it up. Give them a bash to break their skins. Pop them on the bottom of the pan with the mint.
Chop up an onion into chunks and add them too.
Place the lamb on top. By creating a small gap under the lamb the fats will drip off and give you a great base for a gravy to go with your meal.
Mix together 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and drizzle over the lamb. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and it’s ready to bake.
When you cook roast lamb it takes about 25 minutes per pound (1 pound is about 500g) at 150ºC/300ºF/Gas mark 2.
Serve with your favourite vegetables and of course gravy and mint sauce.
If you don't have fresh mint, use dried mint and add 2 tablespoons to the top of the meat with the salt and pepper.
