Method

1/ Turn oven to grill. Rub the leg with olive oil, then season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
2/ Place lamb in a roasting pan and heat on all sides until browned (about 10 minutes in total). Remove it from oven and reduce the temperature to 200°C.
3/ Add potatoes, garlic and sprigs of rosemary to the pan. In a bowl, mix wine with one cup water and mustard. Pour wine mixture over the protein.
4/ Cover the pan loosely with aluminium foil and set the dish in the oven to roast for about one hour, or until a meat thermometer reads around 60°C.
5/ Allow it to rest at least 15 minutes before slicing. Carve meat into 0.5cm-thick pieces, and drizzle with pan sauce and additional olive oil, if desired.
