The perfect dish for entertaining because its long cooking time leaves time to prepare the other dishes for the meal. And the cooked lamb
meat exudes its juices and aromas. »
Ingredients to serve 4:
- Preparation of the ingredients
Pare and slice onions thinly, repeat for carrot.
Cook garlic cloves in their skin in boiling water 3 min.
Rub leg of lamb with coarse salt.
Place on muslin, surround with garlic cloves and tie together.
Put sliced onions and carrots, sage leaves and peppercorns in casserole.
Place leg of lamb on top of other ingredients and pour on 1 pint (half a liter) of white wine, then water until meat is covered.
Put lid on casserole dish.
Set oven to 300 ºF (150 °C), and slide in closed casserole dish. Cook 7 hours.
Untie leg of lamb and remove from muslin. Carve and serve on a platter with whole garlic cloves.
SuggestionThe perfect accompaniment for 7 hour leg of lamb are some nice mashed potatoes with some crushed garlic cloves, or potatoes au gratin cooking stock poured on top. (Gratin Dauphinois -Scalloped potatoes- , Scalloped potatoes with Roquefort and walnuts)
Suggested drink or wines try a "Marginal" Saumur Champigny by Thierry Germain
