Leg of Lamb...
    #2196235 - 12/22/03 07:29 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Ive got a nice leg of lamb but Ive never cooked one..

I plan to bone it out, butterfly it and marinate or stuff it, wrap it back up, tie it and cook it either on the grill or in the oven..

Whats a good marinate for lamb? What would be good to stuff it with? How do you like your lamb, well done or rare?

Pics comming soon.

I usually leave the bone in, adds more flavor. I put slits in the meat and put garlic in it. I also finely chop up some rosemary and rub it all over the leg with olive oil. I just roast it in the oven. I like it medium-rare with a good mint jelly or mint sauce.

What is it about mint and lamb???

I dont think that I would like it... I may try it some day but mint just dont go with any side dishes and to me lamb taste gamey. I duno?

Im thinking of stuffing it with panchetta, sausage, bread crumbs and tomatoe....

As he said, keep the bone in, stud it with garlic and rosemary and don't overcook it. If you don't like the thought of mint with lamb try redcurrant jelly, it's very popular with lamb over here in Britain. I just had leg of lamb with gruyere potato gratin, crisp buttered green beans and some homemade mulled fruit compote with red wine and brandy.

Delicious  :grin:

I think the mint compliments that strong flavor the meat of the lamb has.

with a mortar and pestle crush the following into a fine paste:

fresh garlic cloves
fresh rosemary sprigs (leaves only)
fresh thyme springs
a couple pieces of fresh lemon zest (yellow part only)
a teaspoon or so of cumin seeds
salt
fresh ground pepper
Olive oil

again, mash into a fine paste (start with garlic and salt) then spread over butterflied leg and marinate overnight. Before stuffing smear off excess paste off lamb or if youre not stuffing it leave it on and grill the whole thing till medium rare. In both cases you don't want to overcook lamb. remove once internal temp reaches 145F let rest for at least 15 minutes.

As long as you have olive oil, rosemary, and garlic you're good.  :laugh:

you could also roast the garlic in the oven with a little olive oil and then squeeze out the garlic and it'll be a sticky soft paste.

I agree Llamanose .......my butcher says to cook any meat at 325 degrees. After about 20 mins per pound, stick a fork in the roast, if it's cool to your lips, it's rare, warm...it's medium.....hot...well done

also whats good is if u just push some garlic cloves in teh leg of lamb. then put fatty side up and put alot of corse salt. and some fresh ground pepper.

so tasty anyway glad it worked out lamb usually turns out nice as its tender and fatty yum.

later

If you roast the garlic before putting it on the lamb, then roast the lamb, you will burn the garlic and it will taste bitter. I wouldn't suggest it.

Boned and butterflyed leg of lamb, seasoned with just about everything. Ooh and I did try fresh mint. It was an OK taste hot but it added great flavor when it was cold..


Taboule.


With home made fresh pita bread.


It was a good meal but I wont be making this one again any time soon.
