    twissis's Note:

    Ok, Cookgirl – You asked for it. ... Lamb in Iceland is unlike any other I’ve ever tasted. While it’s the “staple meat” of our country, it has such a wonderful flavor & texture that’s impossible to describe adequately. Siggi & I usually grill a leg of lamb or oven roast it after trimming all excess fat & seasoning w/garlic, rosemary and seasoning salt. This unique recipe takes a different approach & is from my “Classic Scandinavian Cooking” cookbook by Nika Hazelton. The name says it all & the intro is brief. “The coffee, provided it is not overly strong, gives an excellent color to the meat & a subtle taste to the gravy.”

      i've made this twice now. it's really yummy! you don't taste the individual elements of the gravy, they meld together quite well. it's not overtly sweet, which you might expect from the sugar and the carrots. i used an immersion blender to make the gravy. it's also nice to have a thick rich gravy with no flour required!

      Great lamb recipe. Enjoyed very much, using a 3 lb leg from a whole lamb we bought this fall. Cut ingredients back somewhat to keep in line with the smaller roast. I didn't have any gravy (which I left as is because there was a lot produced) but DH and guests enjoyed it and went for more. Absolutely delicious, so glad you posted this, twissis.
