Our Boned & Rolled Lamb Shoulder is the perfect roasting joint: sweet and succulent new-season Welsh lamb, boned and rolled for easy carving. This cut is the favourite of Annie Morgan on our deli counter. She roasts hers studded with garlic and rosemary. “The smell of it cooking brings back memories of helping my nana make fresh mint sauce to accompany it,” she says.

How to roast your lamb joint

We love Sunday lunches and, as you can imagine, we’ve roasted a good many joints in our time. Over the years we’ve found that one method works perfectly for us, resulting in meat that’s always tender and succulent.

  • Take large joints out of the fridge an hour before roasting. This allows the meat to come to room temperature and ensures it cooks more evenly
  • Preheat the oven to 220˚C/fan 200˚C/gas 7.*
  • Choose a deep-sided roasting pan big enough to hold the meat comfortably and add water or wine to a depth of 12-25mm (½-1in). This helps keep the air moist and ensures the meat stays succulent.
  • Sit your joint in the liquid then place the pan in the hot oven.
  • Cook for 20 minutes to seal the meat, then lower the temperature (see below) to finish cooking.
  • Transfer the joint to a warm platter, cover loosely with foil and leave to rest for at least 20 minutes before carving. This gives the juices a chance to settle and makes the meat easier to carve.
  • It also gives you time to turn all those lovely pan juices into rich gravy.
