Not a frequent occurence in this house, a proper Sunday dinner, so this was a really nice change.
A shoulder of lamb, roasted slowly for around 4 hours, with rosemary but no garlic. As tender as a young girl's thigh.
King Edward potatoes, (the only ones in my mind for roasting,) cooked at a high heat in olive oil to make for a crunch to heard a mile away.
Purple Sprouting Broccoli, still just in season, and to be made the most of whilst it is.
Leeks, adding a lovely sweetness to the plate, just sweated in a little butter.
Proper gravy. Made with the copious juices from the lamb.
and Mint sauce. Don't forget the mint sauce..
An English Sunday Dinner.
