    lazyme's Note:

    This is an interesting way to cook the lamb and a vegetable gratin at the same time. The juices from the lamb drip into the gratin dish placed underneath the lamb. It's good, and a fun way to cook, but beware, it can get rather messy.

      Such delicious flavour! I roasted the lamb for nearly 2 hours as we like our lamb very well-done. This allowed the veggies in the gratin to soften a lot and meld and absorb the yummy juices emitted from the lamb. A lovely Sunday lunch, and very, very easy.

      Wow! This was fantastic! I served this last night to our daughter's future in-laws, visiting from England. It turned out even better than I had expected. I increased the potatoes to 4 good sized baking potatoes (don't know the weight). I increased the liquid to 1 1/2 C. of wine and 1/2 C. of olive oil. The jar of roasted peppers was 12oz. I used a nearly 6 lb. boneless leg of lamb from Costco and cooked it for 75 min. in a convection oven. I did not turn the meat as directed because I had a meat rack balanced in 3 metal skewers above the gratin and I did not want to push my luck. After cooking, the lamb rested under foil for about 20-30 min. as we were not quite ready to eat. The meat was medium to medium rare. I think next time I will cook it for an hour or not let it sit so long. As delicious as the meat was, the gratin was the star of the meal. First of all, it looks gorgeous, like something you would see in a food magazine. The potatoes absorbed all the liquid, the onions were sweet and tender and the roasted red peppers were colorful and savory. I might add artichoke hearts next time, but other than that and the previously mentioned changes, this is perfect as is. Our future son-in-law, all 6'5" of him, had thirds!
