The key to lamb roast that wows

Looking to make mouthwatering lamb roast for your loved ones? It's important that you choose the best cut. Obviously, the recipe you're following will recommend the cut you should use, of which there are several major types. But what makes a good cut of lamb for roasting? What should you keep in mind when selecting yours? There are a few fundamentals to keep in mind.

  • Your cut should be firm to the touch
  • Lamb roast cuts shouldn't have a strong smell or have an odour of sourness
  • Make certain you buy ethical lamb
  • Allow the lamb to come to room temperature before you roast it
  • Season your lamb well before cooking
  • For small joints that cook more quickly, use a higher temperature of around 230°C for the whole time you're cooking
  • For bigger roasting joints, begin roasting the meat at around 230°C for 15 minutes then turn it down to 200°C. Continue roasting for about 15 minutes per 500g for rare lamb roast, through to 22-25 minutes per 500g for well done lamb roast.

Frequently asked questions

What is lamb roast?

Lamb roast refers to any cut of lamb that is suitable for roasting. The main roasting cuts include:

  • Leg
  • Shoulder
  • Neck
  • Breast
  • Loin
  • Saddle
  • Chump

Can I serve lamb roast pink?

Yes, you can serve and consume lamb roast that is pink in the middle. In fact, lamb roast cuts are actually more tender and succulent than cooking them for longer. Regardless of if your lamb roast comes from the shoulder, loin or rib, it will typically offer a superior taste when cooked rare or medium-rare, rather than well-done. Cooking lamb well-done can also risk drying the meat out too, and may result in a disappointing dining experience.

How long should I roast lamb?

How long you cook lamb roast depends on both the cut you're using and the desired doneness. Peter Bouchier recommends you always employ a meat thermometer to check your lamb. Mere colour alone is an unreliable guide. The different doneness levels and their temperatures are:

  • Rare: 60°C
  • Medium rare: 60–65°
  • Medium: 65–70°
  • Medium well done: 70°C
  • Well done: 75°C

How long should I rest my lamb after roasting?

The amount of time you should allow your lamb to rest after roasting depends on the size of the cut. A larger cut ought to be rested for between 15 and 20 minutes prior to carving it. Cuts of a smaller size, like chops and cutlets, ought to be rested for around 5 minutes.

How much lamb roast should I buy per person?

We advise our customers that 1kg of a roasting lamb cut will serve 3-4 people, providing about 200g of meat for each individual. If you're unsure, you can't go wrong by erring on the side of a little more rather than a little less. Any lamb not finished will make a great treat in lunches and snacks.
