About this recipe: This is a dish for grand celebrations. Inspired by the Korean beef ribs my grandfather always made for special occasions. Get a trimmed, split, and deboned whole leg of lamb. Make the marinade (which is also good on steak or pork) and marinate overnight. Make in tandoor or bbq the meat to desired doneness. Slice to serve. We like it wrapped in rotis or with chopped lettuce.


Serves: 10 

  • 140 gm hoisin sauce
  • 90ml rice vinegar
  • 6 green onions, minced
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2.5kg boneless butterflied leg of lamb
