  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 140°C. Place the lamb, fat-side up, on a clean work surface. Use a small sharp knife to cut 8 small slits on the surface of the lamb. Place 1 slice of garlic, 1 oregano sprig and 1 rosemary sprig in each slit.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the mint jelly, sugar and combined mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until the mint jelly melts and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the potato, onion, butter, crushed garlic and thyme in a large bowl. Season well. Arrange the potato mixture evenly over the base of a large roasting pan. Place the lamb over the potato mixture. Brush the lamb evenly with half the mint jelly mixture. Pour the stock over the potato mixture. Cover the pan tightly with foil.
  4. Step 4

    Roast for 4 hours or until lamb is falling off the bone. Remove the foil. Increase oven to 220°C. Brush lamb with remaining mint jelly mixture. Roast for a further 30 mins or until lamb is caramelised and potato mixture is golden brown. Loosely cover with foil. Set aside for 15 mins to rest.
  5. Step 5

    Serve the lamb with the potato mixture and steamed vegetables.
