Method

 
Make a few incisions along the muscles to flatten the meat slightly. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper all over the lamb and rub in along with a little sugar. Put the lamb into a roasting pan. Mix together the marinade ingredients and pour over the lamb. Marinate for 3 days, turning the meat twice a day. Braai over medium to slow coals for about 45 minutes, brushing frequently with marinade. Leave a little marinade in the baking pan. Warm up the remaining marinade, put the leg of lamb in the marinade, and allow to sit for a few minutes, while still keeping warm. Serve the thicker sections of meat to those who prefer their meat rare.
