Roast Leg of LambFeatured by Peltier Station in the Gold Wine Club.
6 pound leg of lamb
2 cloves garlic, cut into 1/8 inch slices
4 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. salt
2 large carrots
2 large onions
2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
½ tsp. lemon juice
Pepper to taste
½ cup chicken broth or beef broth
½ cup 2006 Peltier Station Zinfandel
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Get the leg of lamb ready with slivers of garlic inserted into 8 incisions (length of lamb). Place in a covered baking pan and olive oil at the bottom of the pan. Roll lamb in oil a couple times, adding the salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes at 500 degrees, then lower to 375 degrees. Scatter cut-up chunks of carrots, onions, and celery around the lamb. Add ½ cup Peltier Station Zinfandel wine; continue to roast for 1 hour longer. Add a little broth as it gets dry, ¼ cup at a time. Serve and enjoy!
