Prepared with a Rectangular Roaster
The Rectangular Roaster provides even heat for oven-roasted chicken breasts or golden-brown new potatoes.
1. Debone leg of lamb.
2. Fine chop 1 bunch sage leaves, ¼ cup chives and 1 shallot. In a Le Creuset Fry Pan, warm 1 tbsp butter on medium heat and saute fine chopped mix. Transfer sauteed mix to a bowl and add ½ cup Dijon, 3 tbsp honey, 8 fine chopped green olives and 2 tbsp tempered butter. Mix well. Spread your seasoning mix inside leg of lamb. Tie the leg firmly closed with butcher twine. Season outside of leg with salt and pepper. Warm 2 tbsp canola oil in a large pan on medium high heat, add lamb leg and sear on all sides until golden brown. Set aside in a warm place. Preheat oven to 160ºC (325ºF).
3. In a large bowl, combine 1 tbsp pepper, a pinch of cayenne, ¼ cup Dijon mustard, ½ cup honey, ¼ cup brown sugar, the juice of 1 lemon and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
4. Cover the bottom of a large Le Creuset Braiser or Roasting Pan with your favorite root vegetables. Cover seared meat in glaze. Add 4 cups water. Cook for 20 minutes per pound covered. For the last 20 minutes remove cover. Remove lamb from Le Creuset Braiser or Roasting Pan and set aside in a warm place. Let rest for 15 minutes.
5. Pass the cooking juices through a sieve into a saucepot and reduce on medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp flour and 1 tbsp butter, mix well and strain through sieve over lamb and vegetables. Carve and serve!
