My first foray into cooking and eating leg o' lamb, and I must say--what a GREAT introduction this was! Very tasty--the aroma while its baking is unbelievably rich. I followed recipe exactly, except I shoved a knife into the roast (after the broiling part) and forced a few sprigs of rosemary into the meat. Also, I added about a cup of water to the bottom of the baking pan to get some steamy-stuff going on. With about 40 minutes left to the baking time, I added small potatoes to the pan (they sat in the little bit of water-drippings) to roast them alongside the meat....mmmmm! Served with roasted baby carrots (glazed w/brown sugar). Dessert was a pumpkin cheesecake (also from RecipeZaar!). Yummy Christmas dinner. Thank you Bergy for another "count on it!" recipe.
This turned out really well. The middle was still a little rare, so we just threw it back on for a little while longer but the flavors were tasty.
This recipe has made me love lamb. My husband goes crazy for it and asks for it all the time. I used cider vinegar since that is what i had on hand at the time. The meat comes out tasting so sweet.
