Recommended Appliance: Tower 11L Aluminium Pressure Cooker
Total Time to Table: 1 hour
Total Cost Per Serving: £2.57p
Contains Nuts? No
Suitable for Vegetarians? No
1.5kg leg of lamb (bone in)
x 2 tbsp olive oil
115ml of red wine
115ml beef or lamb stock
x 2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 small onion (peeled and cut into quarters)
x 8 cloves of garlic (peeled)
x 6 new potatoes
- Start by placing your Tower 11L Aluminium Pressure Cooker on a high heat then add the olive oil. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and into a baking tray like the Tower Baking Tray, add the new potatoes.
- Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil, sprinkle with good quality sea salt and dried rosemary and shake the pan to evenly coat. Place into the oven and roast for 40 minutes.
- Place the lamb into the pressure cooker and brown on all sides.
- Once evenly browned, add the wine and the stock and throw in the garlic cloves and rosemary.
- Place the lid onto the pressure cooker and set to a high setting. Allow the pressure cooker to come up to optimum pressure then lower the temperature to maintain pressure.
- Cook for 30-40 minutes, depending on how pink you like your meat. Use the natural release method to slowly release the pressure from the cooker. Carefully remove the lamb from the pressure cooker and set aside to rest.
- Transfer any liquid from the pressure cooker into a small saucepan and place on a high heat. Simmer to reduce then add cornflour to thicken creating a thick, glossy sauce.
- Serve the lamb in slices, accompanied by the crispy potatoes and a generous drizzle of the rich red wine gravy.
