Lamb with Garlic

40 cloves garlic – yes, 40!

10 sprigs rosemary – important!

1 leg of lamb, trimmed

500ml good red wine

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Peel the garlic and place with the rosemary under the lamb in a casserole dish.

Pour in the red wine and season.

Place in low oven (around 100ºC) and cook for six to eight hours. Take the lamb out of the casserole dish and put it onto a warm dish. Reduce the sauce, add more wine if needed, and pour it over lamb.

Serve with mashed potatoes, pampoenkoekies (see below) and steamed green beans.

This lamb is absolutely delicious. You need lots of time, but the end result is meat that just falls off the bone!

Up to now we have just sliced and eaten it, maybe pounded it and put it on a sandwich, or at most mixed it with cream cheese for a dip. But modern South African chefs are doing wonderful things with traditional food. Enjoy! 125ml butter, 2 beef stock cubes, 10ml coarsely ground black pepper, 2ml whole nutmeg, grated 2ml freshly ground coriander...

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, water, cornflour, salt and pepper until creamy.
Heat a medium non-stick pan and add ¼ of the Lemon & Lime Infused Oil and
butter. When the oil and butter is hot, pour in ¼ of the egg mixture. Move the
egg around so it covers the base of the pan. Lower the heat and cook until the
underside of the pancake is set and slightly coloured. Use a wide egg slice to
flip over. Cook the other side. Repeat with the other three portions of egg in the same way, to give you four even-sized pancakes. Cover to keep warm.

Mix together well in a bowl. Cover in the fridge for ½ hour. (That’s what we do in Australia.) (Yours could probably sit in the bowl in the snow.) Shape into balls and roll in coconut.

In the beginning South African Gourmet was not something Dion and I expected would grow at the rate it did. With the immigration boom starting in Perth and a large number of South Africans coming over we felt the need to build a sense of community was great. So we embarked on the arduous task never expecting the huge response and continued support that we received.
