Timings

  • For Leg : Prep time about 15 minutes (extra 10 minutes if joint has the bone in)

  • Cook time 30 minutes per 500g, plus 15 minutes (weight after bone removed)

  • Rest time at least 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1.5 kg Leg joint, butterflied (feeds 2 hungry adults, or three polite ones)

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh Oregano

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh Basil

  • 250g jar of  Marinated Artichoke Hearts, chopped

  • 200g Feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1/2 a 170g jar Sun-dried Tomatoes, packed in oil, drained and chopped

  • 3 cloves of Garlic (minced)

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Method

  1. Bring the meat out of the fridge a couple of hours before prep to come up to room temp.

  2. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C.

  3. Lay out the de-boned joint on the chopping board with the inside of the meat facing you.  Drizzle Olive Oil evenly over.  Sprinkle Oregano and Basil over the joint.  Top with Artichoke Hearts, Feta Cheese, Sun-dried Tomatoes and Garlic.  Season with Salt and Pepper.

  4. Roll the joint around the stuffing. Tie the joint with Kitchen Twine to stop in unrolling. Wrap in baking foil and place in a baking dish.

  5. Roast in oven to your preference - timings provided are based on Medium or if you want to use a thermometer, an internal temperature of 70 degrees C. I like to open the foil for the last 15 mins to get a little colour on the meat. 

  6. Once done, rest in a warm place for at least 15 minutes before serving.  The secret to tender roast goat is a good rest. Reserve pan juices for serving.
