They probably do, but don't overtly label it as there are some numbskulls around...
Best way to cook?

Naked.
Cut up an onion, carrot and some garlic - put in a roasting dish. Cover with a little bit of olive oil and some red wine.

Score the fat on the lamb with a sharp knife, then put rosemary and bits of garlic in the scores. Season with salt and pepper.

Then put onto the veg in the roasting dish, pour half a glass of red wine over the lamb. Cover with foil.

Put into a pre heated oven at 220 degrees for 10 mins, turn down to 160 degrees and leave for 3.5 to 4 hours.

It's worth it. Trust me!

Why does not wanting halal meat make people numbskulls ?

I think there's now a requirement to label Halal meet as non-stunned as some people object to the slaughter method. They'll eat farmed animals but object to non-stunning. Odd in my opinion, but it takes all sorts.

Heat added as this is an excellent price.

I add anchovies into the pockets with the garlic and rosemary...they melt into the meat giving a lot of extra flavour...

I am not sure of the latest regulations. But I did find that a lot of commercially farmed lamb in New Zealand is halal - simply because they export it all over the world and they get greater economies of scale if its all slaughtered the same way. As with all meat products, if you want top quality from a known source and known slaughter method, you can only guarantee it by paying the price that goes with it - keeps British farmers in business too.

Indeed! IMO, the most important thing with all meat is to ensure it's properly at room temperature before it's cooked and to ensure it rests well (wrapped in foil, so I under cook as cooking continues once out of the oven). For this lamb dish with the rosemary/garlic/anchovies I also always use the twice cooking method. It goes into a very hot oven for 30 minutes, then out unwrapped for 30 minutes then back into the oven @ c 175 for the rest of the cooking time (which clearly depends on how you like your lamb - I like it properly pink personally). Then a rest again. Then all the juices from the meat and the bed of veg can be used for the gravy.

OK. I'm boring myself now: I'll get my coat..

I want it labelled, as do millions of people, so we can avoid the muck. I'm sure you would prefer to be unconscious if you were to have your throat cut compared to being fully conscious and watch your blood pouring everywhere, halal is evil
Halal is for numbskulls.
Halal way of killling animals is not humane. its not a nice way of killing these poor animals.

And so do Jews and Hindus. As the latter are allowed to slaughter sheep in their back gardens. Christians are however not allowed to slaughter sheep in their back garden !

It's a bit more nuanced than that, I can assure you. Stunning doesn't always work, the death is slower.... It's not as black and white as your somewhat reactive sounding comment makes it appear.
Sorry to correct "KIRSTYDEALS123" it's not UK lamb, it's Australian.
AND IT'S BLOODY LOVELY. Vacuum packed & suitable for freezing ! Leg of Lamb for £8-00 ? ? Enjoy.

Sorry it's AUSTRALIAN origin !
I worked in a slaughter house years ago so my comment is based on experience. What's your comment based on?
