I'm going to try this on Monday, just wondered if anyone else has done it?

Thanks skiing! My plan is to brown it, then make slits in it, and shove garlic, rosemary and the anchovies in. Does that sound like a plan?

I did it a while ago. DH said it was the tastiest roast lamb he had ever had. I found it a bit rich, even though I love anchovies and can eat them straight fromthe tin.

Sounds delicious. Please let us know how it goes.

Sounds like an excellent plan. I love the smell as it pervades the house with lovely roast lambiness too!

Lamb is in. I had issues finding a frying pan big enough to brown it. Think we may have overdone it, there's only dh and I grin . I could put some aside for 6 month old ds for tomorrow, but not sure if the anchovies will be too salty?

The lamb was lovely, but I think we will leave the anchovies out next time. The taste was great, but I thought that they would melt away. They ended up being a bit grainy whenever we ate a bit of lamb with it in. Still worth the effort though! Had roast tatties and creamed cabbage with it.

I do it by making loads and loads of slits in the meat. Then chop up the garlic and herbs, snip up the anchovies and pound it all to a paste with some olive oil with pestle and mortar. Smear it all over the joint, rubbing it well in so it goes into the slits. Bit of a messy job but this way you don't get isolated mouthfuls of anchovy, just a more even spread of flavours.

That may be where I went wrong, Kitten, I just shoved it all in whole into the slits. Will they and make a paste next time grin
