How to Cook Caramel Lamb Roll With Potatoes

  1. For the garlic mixture:
    Add the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary leaves, and salt to a glass. Mix them together using a hand mixer.
  2. For the lamb roll:
    Place the lamb shoulder on the workspace, coat it with the garlic-rosemary mixture and roll it. Use cooking twine to truss the lamb roll. Slide the twine underneath the roll 0.4-0.8 inches (1-2 cm) from the end. Bring the twine’s end over, tighten the bind and make a simple knot. Make a loop with the twine, slide it underneath the roll keeping a 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) distance from the first loop. Pull the string a little to tighten the bind around the roll. Repeat this and make loops until you reach the lamb roll’s other end. Make a final knot to secure the whole bind.
  3. Wrap the lamb roll in aluminum foil, put it in a baking dish and roast for 90 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.
  4. For the baked potatoes:
    Using a knife make a cross-shaped incision on each potato. Fill each one with ½ teaspoon butter. Also, stick a piece of rosemary sprig in each incision.
  5. Put the potatoes in a baking dish and roast them for 20 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  6. For the honey-sugar caramel:
    Add the sugar, honey, and lemon zest in a saucepan. Stir and cook over low heat until the sugar starts caramelizing.
  7. Unwrap the aluminum foil and coat the lamb roll with caramel.
  8. Roast for 15 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  9. Slice and serve with potatoes.
