The ultimate Greek Lamb one pot roast perfect for Autumn

We love the feeling of both celebration and comfort that a Sunday family roast dinner conjures. There are so many component parts, and while its delicious, ritualistic and has a part in every family food repertoire, sometimes you have neither the time nor the energy for 9 different dishes and the use of 12 pans. Enter Lamb Kleftico….

Lamb is slowly roasted atop a mix of vegetables and fragrant herbs - potatoes which turn crisp on the edges, tomatoes cook down turning the stock sweet and jammy, onions caramelised along with sweet red peppers. You need only to add these items to a baking dish, cover with a lid or parchment and leave it in a slow oven for 4-5 hours.

WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result.

WHAT IS ORGANIC CHICKEN?​

Our chickens are 100% organic, they have room to roam, a naturally foraged balanced diet, clean water and high hygiene standards. The chickens are grown slowly for approximately 70 days not 35 like those reared in intensive systems. Full of flavour and oh-so tender, it’s a versatile meat that is full of goodness. 

Ingredients

  • 1 organic leg or shoulder of lamb, approx 2.5kg
  • 1kg potatoes
  • 2-3 onions
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • bunch of fresh thyme
  • stick of cinnamon
  • 4 bay leaves
  • fresh oregano - a few sprigs plus a tablespoon of chopped leaves
  • garlic olive oil
  • 100ml chicken bone broth
  • salt and pepper

Method

  1.  Heat your oven to 160 °C
  2. Wash and chop all the veggies, apart from the garlic which you just slice horizontally to expose the middle of each clove. Add all veggies, garlic herbs (apart from a tablespoon of chopped oregano) and stock to a large roasting dish or casserole
  3.  Rub the lamb with a drizzle of garlic oil, sprinkle with the remaining oregano, salt and pepper, and nestle on top of the vegetables
  4.  Cover well with parchment or a lid and roast for 4 hours. Go for a walk, go to the pub, read the paper - whatever floats your boat
  5. After 4 hours, your house will smell incredible- remove the parchment or lid and roast for a further hour
  6.  Serve alongside something green, some bread or nothing at all - it’s a complete meal as is & is utterly gorgeous

Frequently asked questions

  • Our lambs at Coombe Farm Organic feed on our abundant West Country pasture, thriving on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs.

  • Organic lamb has to be certified by an approved organic body to a number of set organic standards. These include the space that an organic lamb animal has to graze, the way that it’s food is grown, without the use of pesticides and or unapproved fertilisers. The standards for organic lamb also cover use of medicines and other points that improve the welfare and conditions throughout the life of the animal and on through slaughter and butchery.

  • When choosing lamb to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are several studies that suggest organic meat is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. We believe organic lamb tastes better than commercially farmed alternatives, tasting ‘meaty’, rich, sweet and decadent. All of Coombe Farm Organic's lamb comes from our hardy flock of cross-bred sheep. The breeds we've chosen make the most of our abundant West Country pasture, thriving on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs. Growing slowly, the lambs build hearty immune systems and strong skeletons. All of this influences the way their meat tastes and cooks, we really believe that happy animals result in the best quality and best tasting meat.
