  2. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4-5, 180-190°C,350-375°F.
  3. Place the joint in a large roasting tray and drizzle with the oil. Roast uncovered for the calculated cooking time. Cover with foil if browning too quickly.
  4. 40 minutes before the end of the cooking time remove the roasting tray from the oven and add the potatoes, carrots, peppers and thyme around the lamb joint. Toss gently.
  5. Serve the lamb whole or sliced with the roasted vegetables.
