Roast Leg Of Lamb In A Crust
|Leg of lamb||6 Pound|
|Cold water||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm), crushed|
|Flour||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
Rub the joint with the crushed garlic.
Make a stiff paste of the flour and water.
Roll this out and cover the leg completely with the paste.
Put it into an ungreased roasting pan and bake at 350°, allowing 25 minutes to the pound.
Reduce heat if crust browns too fast.
Crack the paste and discard.
Put the joint back in the oven, well painted with soft butter, and bake until lightly browned.
