3) Take it off from heat and let cool.
4) Into a flavor injector, pour the reduced juice.
5) On a flat surface, put the lamb and inject all over with small amounts of the juice.
6) Coat lamb with the flour and arrange on a rack in a roasting pan and roast for 80 minutes in preheated oven.
7) Pour 1/2 cup (118 ml) of water to the roasting pan to keep the pan drippings from burning.
