Lamb & Potatoes

Variation Ideas: 
Veal roast with potatoes


This dish, traditionally cooked for the Easter holiday, is very easy to make. Wash the meat carefully and then dry it. Put in an oven pot the lamb pieces, garlic, onion, rosemary, potatoes, olive oil, l11 glass of water and put in the oven. After 10 minutes, turn the meat pieces and keep cooking for 10 minutes more. Add wine, salt and turn the meat. Take out the lamb form the oven, wait for the temperature to reach 170°/338° F, and then keep cooking until the lamb is dry and brown: it will take about 45 minutes. For this recipe we suggest to put a small pot with water in the oven to keep the meat more humid.
