Garlic & Rosemary Leg Of Lamb

OomOomOom!  Okay, soooo, I mean, WOW!  My first time out, with instruction, of course!  So, I told you my ex can cook ... meat.  Oh, he puts a hurt'n on some meat!  So whenever he breezes through town to visit my daughter, he often brings a fresh cut leg of lamb!  The last several times, I watched with intent - just so intimated.  But this time, I took the plunge, added my seven senses, and there you go!

Ooooooom!  Can you see the pockets of garlic?  Not to mention the flavors enhanced by the garlic butter* and spicy mustard, I mean, what more can I say, except, well here's how easy it is to prepare.  WOW!  That I can even say that ... now!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Set your oven temperature to 375F
  • Rinse and pat dry the leg of lamb
  • Score on both sides (leaving pockets to stuff)
  • Stuff garlic cloves into the pockets
  • Rub in your seasonings (salt, both lemon and hot pepper, rosemary, garlic powder, etc.)
  • Rub on garlic butter* and spicy brown mustard (ensure to get down in the pockets)
  • Place open-faced on baking sheet (lined with foil for easy clean up)
  • Bake for 45 minutes, then flip; bake another 45 minutes, then check for tenderness
  • Takes about 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on size of leg; this one's small)
  • Best served from the oven hot to the table - just my preference!

Reminder:  Grannie keeps a steady supply of Garlic Butter (fresh cloves of garlic and olive oil ground to paste; takes the flavor of almost anything up a notch!
