whole leg of lamb
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
Fantastic!!! This recipe came out great. I used a honey dijon mustard and added the Worcestershire sauce to the mustard before spreading it on the leg. I also added parsley, rosemary, and garlic powder under the mustard. Even my family members who said they do not like lamb, loved this recipe. Plus it was SO easy. Thanks!
I didn't like this at all. The mustard overpowered the taste of the lamb.
This was very good, but I did make some changes. For mustard I used a sweet hot mustard. It worked very well. It gave some of the heat of mustard with out overwhelming the taste of the lamb. I skipped the flour. Instead of just laying garlic slices on it, I cut pockets into the lamb and put the garlic slices in there. I also added a bit of Rosemary, Basil and Thyme. Not a lot, just enough to add a hint of herb flavor. I also added the herbs and mustard and everything about an hour before cooking so it would have some time to soak into the meat. My husband loved it, as did I.
this was my first time making lamb and this was an easy recipe that was very good. I used a 6 lbs leg and used only as much mustard as was needed to cover the leg completely. I also used garlic powder when I used the salt and pepper. Yummy.
I loved this recipe, but I also altered it a bit. I added all ingredients minus the flour and plus 1 T. lemon juice and 1 T. white wine and mixed a paste to spread on lamb. I lined the pan with sliced carrots and potatoes. I started the lamb at 425* for first 25 minutes.
I found some sweet classic dijon and loved it so much I added a lot more than was called for here. It was a hit. Very easy to make, delicious and satisfying.
GREAT GREAT GREAT...MY FATHER EVEN LIKED IT
A Friend of mine did this and it was Fabulous!! She used Dijon & Wooster, then smeared it with crushed garlic -- she forgot about the flour, it was so yummy!!
