FOR THE LAMB
a leg of lamb
1 spanish onion
125ml olive oil
half a lemon
a bulb of garlic
a fresh cayenne chilli
2 sprigs of thyme
5 gms cumin seeds
5 gms coriander seeds
black pepper, cracked
FOR THE RUBY SLAW
500 gms (half a head) of red cabbage - finely sliced
500 gms beetroot, cooked, peeled and grated
125 ml mayonnaise
10 ml lemon juice
Score the lamb leg and rub the marinade into it.
Leave for 24 hours.
Preheat an oven to 240oC.
Place the onions and herbs in a deep roasting tray with some sunflower oil
Season the lamb with salt and cracked black pepper and place on top of the vegetables.
Roast the lamb for about 30-40 minutes, until the outside is browned.
Then remove from the oven, pour a cup of water into the pan.
Lightly cover the lamb leg with tinfoil and return to the oven.
Reduce the temperature to 190oC and cook 4 hours.
Then remove the tinfoil, increase oven temperature to 220 and cook for about 30 minutes until the skin is crisp.
Remove the lamb from the oven and strain off any liquids and allow the joint to stand in a warm place for 20 minutes.
Allow the meat juices to settle then skim the fat off the surface and discard.
Bring the remaining meat juice to the boil and reduce.
Using a knife remove the meat from the bone and whilst wearing thick gloves tear the hot meat apart.
Add a little at a time of the reduced liquid to the lamb, be careful as the reduced liquid may be salty.
Check the seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
Serve in a warm roll with mayonnaise, beef tomato, mixed leaves and mint sauce.
Remove the outer leaves and core of the cabbage.
Cut into very thin slices.
Grate the cooked beetroot.
Mix all ingedients together.
Season with salt and pepper as needed.
