1. Prepare the marinade by processing all the ingredients together

2. Open up the lamb roast and use a knife to fan out the meat

3. Add salt and some of the jerk marinade and rub it into the meat on both sides

4. Prepare the filling by heating some oil and sautéing the onion and garlic

5. Add the spring onion bulbs, carrots, red peppers and spring onion leaves

6. Add some salt and the jerk sauce and mix

7. Take it off the heat and also the filling to cool

8. Once cool add some of the filling in the centre and roll the meat

9. Secure with butcher’s twine, this is called trussing, look at the technique in my video

10. Stab the roast with a small knife, and add the slices of garlic in

11. Add this to a preheated oven and add the roast to an oven proof dish

12. Sear on one side and after about 20 mins flip over and sear the other side

13. I’m going to flip it back over and add the bay leaves, thyme, sliced onion, more oil if you need, and stick it back in the oven

14. Cook the Lamb in total for 45 – 60 mins depending on how much you want it cooked


15. Serve and Enjoy!
