do you need to cover this (with foil) in the oven?

Ok this recipe was easy and sOOOOo tasty. My husband LOVED it and he's very picky. I cooked the veggies in the oven for 10-15 mins before adding the lamb and it came out perfect. I was worried the lamb would be dry but it was so juicy. The combination of the rosemary and the mustard seeds was just divine. I browned the lamb for 1-2 mins on each side and popped it on top the veggies for an additional10 mins in the oven. I did add carrots, 4 cloves of whole garlic and marinaded the lamb with only salt and pepper for about 20mins before I browned it. I made mint sauce to accompany the lamb, but it really wasn't necessary as the veggies and lamb was so flavourful.. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you :) :)

Quick, easy and really tasty. I added carrots for some extra vegetable vitamins. Unfortunately I didn't slice the potatoes or the carrots thinly enough so I needed extra cooking time. I'll know better for next time, or might put the veg ion for a bit before adding the meat!

Found the lamb to be a little on the dry side, so when I reheated the left-overs, I did it in a frying pan with some double cream - delicious!

Made this for tea after half marathon and it hit the spot. I added carrots to the roast and thinly cut sweet pots cooked in yhe 20 mins stated. Will definitely do again.

Great midweek tea although I prefer my Lamb a little pinker so I take it out after 15mins and cover with tinfoil to rest.

I would suggest adding a cup full of veg stock before roasting.. Bit dry otherwise

Teaching my teenage son to cook and this recipe was used for tonight's supper - delicious!
No red onion in the house - white was fine

Really quick, nice and easy! If you're a beginner like me though, make sure you season the lamb correctly!

Great recipe. I used only one sweet potatoe and i added 2 small courgettes, 1 carrot and leak. I did put veggies mixed in oil and 1 tsp of dried rosemary for 20 min to oven before meat and only after I added meat with mustard, extra rosemary and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. Unfortunately Some leek burned, however the meat and rest of the veggies were perfect. Next time I will use just onion or I will add leek same time as the meat.

the is a really delicious recipe but i would recommend starting the sweet potatoes in the oven for 10-15minutes before adding the lamb steaks

I cooked this meal for a romantic night in, and wow it was good. Great flavours, simple but effective. Goes great with roasted carrots. Start cooking the potatoes before adding the meat as it does take longer to cook than stated.

Extremely tasty dish - would also recommend putting in the sweet potatoes in for 10-15 mins before adding the lamb.

Very quick, very easy, definitely will thow in some garlic
next time. I also didn't have any Rosemary in but Tyme worked just as well. We had it with Brocolli, Carotts and Parsnips... And a cheeky piece of bread to mop up the juices!

It is a nice and easy one, but I added some garlic and salt. And next time would probably add some red wine for flavour.

As others have mentioned, give the Sweet Potatoes 20mins first at 180, then put the meat in. Simple mid week tasty roast.

Made this on a few occasions and you do really need to part boil the tats before adding to the oven. I always prefer sweet tats with lamb then normal so this was perfect! Was surprised that the mustard tasted sooo good with the lamb! This is def one I will be making again and again and I recommend to all!
