With fresh lamb in the freezer, my mouth was watering at the thought of a roast. Lamb roast is amazing and so easy to do. Let me show you!
First we're going to sear that roast in a bit of oil over high heat.
Look at that color!
While you're searing it on all sides, chop up an onion and add it to the bottom of a roaster.
No fancy herbs or spices here, just salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
See, isn't that beautiful?
Next, add about an inch of water to the bottom of the roaster.
One recipe I read for lamb roast said to add beef broth. WHY?? If I wanted it to taste like beef, I would have roasted a beef! We want it to taste like lamb so we just a bit of water to keep things moist. We don't want to boil the meat.
Add the lid to seal in the moisture.
We're going to cook this low and slow. This technique is called "braising" and is an excellent way to cook grass-fed meats.
I started this roast just before 9am. And yes, I do think about lamb before 9am.
We were having this roast for lunch.
And a mere three hours later this is what we find!
Tender, delicious, fall apart yumminess.
I served this with an herbed rice and creamed peas...wonderful!
See how easy it is to cook lamb??
