Preheat the oven to 160 ºC. Soak the pears in the port or sweet wine for about 1 hour and mash in the liquid. Season the leg of lamb with salt, pepper, coriander and herbs and slice, but not all the way through. Mix the mashed pears and port with the remaining filling ingredients and spoon between the slices, using meat skewers or cocktail sticks to secure. Place the leg of lamb in a roasting dish and bake for about 1 1/2 hours or until done. Baste the meat regularly with the pan juices. Rest for 10 minutes and serve with savoury rice and baby vegetables. Serves 7-8.
