Roast Leg of Lamb Day
National Roast Leg of Lamb Day! People have been eating lamb for more than 10,000 years. During the Middle Ages, farmers learned that sheep were the most productive livestock. These animals supplied wool for clothing, skins for parchment, milk for butter and cheese, and hearty flavorful meat.
You can cook lamb a variety of different ways, but roasting is one of the most popular methods. This dish pairs beautifully with seasonings like rosemary, oregano, thyme, or lemon zest. For something extra special, make a stuffed leg of lamb or prepare a succulent sauce to serve on top!
You can usually pick up a leg of lamb at your local grocery or butcher shop. The tender cut is from the hindquarter of the animal. The portion is probably a little bit bigger than any roast you've ever put in the oven, but don't let that intimidate you.
Like any roast, seasoning is key to amp up the flavor. If you're not used to preparing lamb, don't let the gamey smell frighten you off; it will have a nice, sweet flavor once cooked.
