We don't have lamb for dinner very often - usually when we do, it's a traditional leg of lamb when my mother is visiting. This, however, is a nice, simple, and easily-made variation for when you find less expensive cuts of lamb.
This in response to a request, I have not tried it but it sounds wonderful, if you try it please let me know how it is. (From "The Wine and Food of Europe - Marc & Kim Millon). Called Ghivetch. Finally got around to trying this yesterday, served to company and everyone loved it! wish I had tried it sooner, served with a tomato salad and chunks of French bread to sop up the delicious juices.
The topping is quite different (for us anyway) kinda like a frittata--very good.)
This is posted in response to a request for "skewer" recipes. A real coincidence as this was being prepared on the food network by Nick Makris from Nick's Diner in Regina Sask - it looked SO GOOD I just had to post it. Use pork or lamb - serving with pita bread is optional but tzatziki is a must! Prep time includes a minimum of 2 hours for marinating.
Just by changing the finishing herb, you can make this a middle eastern or European dish... I read this in a paper somewhere in the 'quick dining' section...well its not THAT quick, but the scrumptious rich lamb in the sauce combined with the sweet tart peaches make for a memorable combination.
Delicious either roasted or barbecued. Check internal temperature. You want it to be pink (160°F). Remember that it continues to cook a bit after you remove it from the cooking source Don't be shy with the garlic. Try serving a bit of Horseradish on the side as well as mint jelly. In the pictures I cooked a very small leg just large enough for 2 people.It was excellent
This is a great way to roast a leg of lamb. You may also use a butterflied leg and rub the rosemary blend inside and out - you do not need to score the lamb if you rub the mixture inside. I found this recipe on the net. It is good.
