Karreekloof Safari Lodge Cuisine

Leg of Lamb

At Karreekloof Safari Lodge the cuisine we prefer is Lamb Leg.  It’s a true Karoo traditional recipe and we only make use of the finest lamb.

Recipe:  Servings 6-8 persons


  • mint jelly (optional)
  1. Combine mustard, garlic, rosemary, and pepper.
  2. Rub all over the leg of lamb (lamb may be covered and refrigerated to marinate up to 24 hours before roasting).
  3. Place roast in foil-lined roasting pan.
  4. (Insert Meat Thermometer into thickest part of the roast). (The desired temperature for medium well done is 150°.)
  5. In preheated 400° ovens, roast for 15 minutes and then reduce oven temperature to 325° for 1 hour and 20 minutes for a 4-pound medium well-done roast. If the well-done roast is desired, cook longer to your desired doneness.
  6. Remove roast to cutting board and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  7. Serve with mint jelly if desired.
