The weekend is here, and we all know what that means; Fiesta Friday time! Thanks again to our Angie from The Novice Gardener for this friendly party. I cannot believe this is the 30th Fiesta Friday already, time sure flies! Thanks to Margherita from La Petite Casserole  for co hosting this week!

Serves 8


  • 2 x 400g of lamb leg without bone
  • 1 brown onion
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • A lot of old style whole grain mustard (for me Maille)
  • 3 branches of rosemary
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 potatoes
  • Water



  1. In a cast iron pot add the olive oil.
  2. Add the sliced onion, the rosemary branches and the peeled garlic.
  3. Start to cook on a medium heat.
  4. Meanwhile, rub the entire surface of the lamb with the mustard.
  5. Add the lamb to the pot, add the salt and the black pepper.
  6. Start to roast for about 10 minutes the whole surface of the lamb.
  7. Pour the water to cover the lamb and cook for 1h 30 minutes, more or less depending on your stove and your pot.
  8. When the sauce is reduced and the lamb tender, remove from the stove and set aside.
  9. Peel and wash the potatoes.
  10. Dry the potatoes on a kitchen towel.
  11. Grate the potatoes.
  12. Put the grated potatoes into a bowl, add the salt and the black pepper.
  13. In a large none stick frying pan add a few of olive oil.
  14. Spread and flatten a little of grated potatoes with a fork into the pan,  cook on a medium heat, when the bottom is golden brown, flip with a large spatula the potato.
  15. Cook until the other side becomes golden brown, proceed the same way for the rest of the grated potatoes.
  16. Serve on a dishing plate with a  few slices of the roasted lamb.

    I need to stop visiting blogs when I’m hungry….all I want now is a big plate of this delicious looking lamb! It appears to be roasted to perfection, Linda! I love that you didn’t go overboard with the seasonings and herbs either. Oh, how I wish your kitchen was just across the street instead of across the world! 😀

      You made me laugh Nancy 🙂 It happens very often to me, the same when you do your grocery and you are starving 😀 The lamb was tasty with the mustard and the rosemary. I can imagine myself running with my apron and my basket of food, it will be a great idea 😀 Enjoy the rest of the weekend and take care xx
