I found this recipe on the internet on a Greek cooking site and thought that it sounded good. You either use a leg of lamb or use lamb shanks. Posted for ZWT6.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wipe meat with damp cloth.
  2. Make incisions with small sharp knife on all sides of leg or shanks.
  3. Insert pieces of garlic clove and cheese.
  4. Rub with lemon juice.
  5. Sprinkle with herbs, salt and pepper.
  6. Wrap securely in heavy paper twice.
  7. Use greaseproof paper such as cooking parchment or oil brown paper. (Do not use aluminum foil. It prevents browning.)
  8. Tie with string.
  9. Bake a leg for 2 1/2 hours in 350F oven. Bake 2 hours if using shanks.
