Roasted lamb

The most delicious roasted lamb is obtained when lamb is roasted at a low temperature (about 170°C) for a long time, this time is determined by the size of the piece of meat and the fat content in it.

According to the customs for lamb for Easter and lamb for St. George's Day, it can be roasted whole - ie. the lamb must be very well cleaned, flavored and roasted at a very low temperature throughout the day.

But as lovers of lamb, we know that we can roast it in portions (this is also recommended by master chefs, who claim that this is how lamb is roasted evenly).

In order for lamb to melt in your mouth, wrap the meat in foil and roast it for 1 hour, then roast it for at least another 30 minutes (this, of course, is for a small part of the lamb - lamb shoulder or lamb leg).

Raw lamb

Important! For a lamb shoulder weighing 1.2 - 1.5 kg it takes about 2.5 hours to achieve a perfectly crispy skin.

Be careful when choosing lamb. It must have its traditional pinkish-red color and a specific odor. If the meat does not match this description, choose the meat from another place.

Buy lamb is not imported. Imported meat is deep frozen to last longer.
