My favorite meat is Lamb. I have tried many recipes from the net and this was by far the best recipe for my tastes. The honey was a nice addition to the usual ingredients. I used regular Mustard spice instead of dijon and it came out nice. I also cooked it @ 425 degree first than brought it down to 325 degrees since I had a small 2 lb roast and didnt want it to cook to fast. It only took 1 hour to cook. Thanks!
