JMO, however, while this treatment produces a nicely moist and flavorful piece of lamb, I felt it fell short of the special extra touch which justifies a five star rating. The only thing I did differently was to layer the dish with thinly sliced potato & Vidalia onion, a middle layer of thinly sliced tomato and then another of potato & onion (each layer about 3/4" deep), each treated with some freshly mashed rosemary in EVOO, before placing the lamb on top. Then, like another reviewer, I roasted the veggies at 450 for about 15 minutes while the meat rested. Been preparing lamb this way for several years w/o the rosemary sprigs; this touch is a definite improvement - thanks hkwilkins1. One tip: use large garlic cloves, trimmed into multiple smaller, chisel-tipped spears roughly the size of small cloves to ease insertion and promote flavor transmission.
