Roast Saddle of Lamb

Ingredients

  • 1 saddle of lamb
  • ¼ lb. (120 g.) melted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • flour

Method

The butcher will prepare the saddle for you in the traditional way.

Rub the saddle with mixed salt and pepper, then dust it with flour and place it in a roasting tray. Pour the melted butter over it. Cook the meat in a preheated oven for 20 minutes at 450° F., gas mark 8, then reduce the heat to 350° F., gas mark 4, and continue roasting for 20 minutes per lb. of meat, basting it frequently. A saddle of mutton or lamb should never be overcooked and must be carefully carved. It is always accompanied by red-currant jelly.
