Here is my Australia Day roast lamb dinner

Here is my Australia Day roast lamb dinner. You may recall on Sunday I cooked a standing rib roast and in that post embedded a YouTube video outlining the marketing campaign for Australia Day roast lamb.

Before we get to dinner though let’s look at how I spent some of my Australia Day.

For breakfast I enjoyed a green and gold omelet with Coon cheese, a good Australian cheese.

I then went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra.

So I spent a good portion of today cleaning the apartment for a rental inspection tomorrow and also binge watching World War II in colour on Netflix. Nothing like learning a little modern history while my Australia Day roast lamb was cooking. I’m so grateful to the warfighters and civilians who fought and died for our freedom and our way of life.

So this Australia Day roast lamb was all about a low slow oven cook. I used the leftover beef stock and quinoa with green peppercorns from my roast beef to enrich the flavour of my roast lamb.
