Method

 
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Make small incisions in the lamb with the point of a sharp knife.
Push garlic cloves and rosemary into the holes.
Grind salt and pepper over the meat and rub with the oil.
Place the lamb fatty side up on the rack of the oven's roasting pan.
Arrange the potatoes in the bottom of the pan, season with salt and pour in about 60 ml water.
Tuck rosemary and garlic cloves among the potatoes.
Place the rack with the lamb on top of the potatoes and roast for 25 minutes per 500 g of meat plus another 20 minutes for medium-rare meat and to crisp the potatoes - about two hours altogether.
Regularly baste the meat with the juice in the bottom of the pan.
Switch off the oven and allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes in the oven before carving, so the juices can be re-absorbed.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
