Oom! Oom! Oom! 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! #ThingsThatMakeYouGoOom
Garlic & Rosemary Leg Of Lamb
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!
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!
