Camp Fire slow roast lamb

We spent a amazing few days camping at Lagoon Bay on the Bangor Property in Dunalley. How lucky are we in Tassie to be able to catch our own seafood and to give our children this experience. Proper recreational licenses are required of course but anyone can do it. But the best meal of the camping trip was this slow roast lamb it was amazing! It is worth going camping just to cook this!!

Camp fire slow roast lamb

1 large leg of lamb

2 onions

1 bulb garlic
2 bay leaf
tablespoon oregano
tablespoon thyme
tablespoon rosemary
salt and pepper
carrots
sweet potato

½ onion

2 cloves garlic
1/8 th cabbage
2 cups peas

flour
stock (or water)
Tablespoon chutney

 

Heat your camp oven on the side of the fire.

Leave a half an onion and 2 cloves of garlic for your veggies later and roughly cut up the rest and lay in the camp oven. Put your lamb leg on top you can poke a bit of the garlic into any where you can. Sprinkle the herbs over the top and add a good sprinkle if salt and pepper
put the lid on and leave cooking slowly for about 6 hours ( I put it on at about 11 because I think it will only benefit from being rested if it cooks quicker than expected. Put the whole carrots and sweet potatoes in for the last 2 hours of cooking.

 

To cook the cabbage and peas sauté the crushed garlic and sliced onion add the cabbage and sauté until tender toss through the peas to heat

 

To make the gravy: remove the cooked carrots and sweet potato and set aside over a medium heat add the flour and cook for a few minutes ( I just left the lamb in the middle of the camp oven slightly elevated on the onion and garlic) add the stock and chutney season with salt and pepper and stir well.

only on one of the days the beach and water was covered with the most amazing variety of jellyfish, I’ve never seen anything like it all together like that! there would have been over 200 along the beach and they were quite scaring looking when in the water. But all gone the next day?!000101_1157000101_1158000101_1169000101_1173000101_1191000101_1195000101_1199000101_1201000101_1203

  1. Hi, just purchased a camp oven today and googled to find a recipe to cook roast lamb – coincidentally I’m going camping at Bangor for two nights tomorrow! Lovely photos thank you, can’t wait to go (and test out your recipe).

      1. Not sure how to post a photo but just got back from camping. Had a wonderful time and the lamb recipe was amazing – was a 1.5kg piece and started cooking at 130pm to eat at about 6. Was so juicy and tender Will definitely make again – thanks so much for the recipe. We cooked jacket potatoes in foil in the coals and I wrapped up some beans to steam in foil over the fire. Finished off with apple crumble 🙂
