    Default Leg of lamb Recipes?

    Does any one have a good leg of lamb recipe? I would like to cook one on the BBQ rotisserie - but I have heard if you do it wrong it will turn to rubber.

    Look forward to hearing some recipes!

    GRILLED BUTTERFLIED LEG OF LAMB WITH LEMON, HERBS, AND GARLIC

    For herb rub
    8 garlic cloves
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon coarse salt
    3 tablespoons olive oil Paste
    a 7- to 8-pound leg of lamb, trimmed of all fat, boned, and butterflied by butcher (4 to 4 3/4 pounds boneless)
    1 lemon



    Make herb rub:
    Finely chop garlic and in a small bowl stir together with remaining herb-rub ingredients.
    Put lamb in a large dish and with tip of a sharp small knife held at a 45-degree angle cut 1/2-inch-deep slits all over lamb, rubbing herb mixture into slits and all over lamb. Marinate lamb at room temperature 1 hour.

    Prepare grill.

    Lightly pat lamb dry. On a lightly oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals grill lamb about 10 minutes on each side, or until an instant-read thermometer horizontally inserted into thickest part of meat registers 125F for medium-rare. (Alternatively, roast lamb in a roasting pan in middle of a 425F oven about 25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer horizontally inserted into meat registers 125F for medium-rare.) Transfer lamb to a cutting board. Halve and seed lemon. Squeeze juice over lamb and let stand, loosely covered with foil, 15 minutes.

    Cut lamb into slices and serve with any juices that have accumulated on cutting board.

    Serves 8.

    Cheffie--you promised to keep Noo Zelund a secret!! And here you are divulging one of the nicest bits of tucker to the world (roast lamb tastes the best just after it has "rested"-and the burnt and crispy bits are cook's perks)

    We are in the middle of winter here--had more than a drop of rain,fining up at present--beach's are still deserted except for me'n'dog. And yes "your" islands out in the Hauraki Gulf are looking good.

    Don't worry. I'm keeping the best stuff secret. When I come back next year, I don't want the beaches to be filled up. I loved having the beach to myself and nature.

    Dave- more to come.....

    Country Style Lamb.

    1. Spot good looking lamb in paddock.

    2. Remove rest of lamb from required leg.

    3. Remove the wool (it gets stuck in your teeth ).

    4. Place leg in a roasting dish.

    5. Roast until no more blood flows when the leg is punctured with a skewer. 2 to 3 hours on a moderate to hot heat.

    6. Let it rest under tin foil for about 20 to 30 minutes. (TooandFrom is right about that)

    Do NOT use the rotisserie, use a deep covered roasting dish, keeps the juices in better.

    If you want to get flash, get some rosemary branches and place them in the roasting dish.

    PS. Roast potatoes and other vegetables in the fat / oil when the leg is resting.

    Use the fat/oil to make a nice gravy.

    Serve with GUINNESS.

    Traditional Sunday meal out this way. Us Kiwis know how to relax.

    Talking A Kiwi's ode to love....

    He went to the meadow to find him a sheep
    he found the right one and said "hello, my name's Bo Peep"
    he says "I'll tell you right now, to have the most fun
    find the the right sheep and call her your Hon"
    he's hung out with horses, even tried moose and he said
    "they're okay, but their morals are loose,
    Dogs are loveable, and so are cats,
    but sheep are much better
    hmmm...that's that!

    Lets keep the sheep jokes pointing towards the kiwis.
    I reckon the key to cooking it is to let is rest for at least 10 minutes before serving. It becomes so much juicier. And with a bit of mint jelly... *sigh*

    *going back upstairs to get more lamb*
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
