slow cooked lamb with garlic and rosemary

Donna Hay’s recipe for slow cooked lamb contains just a few ingredients and could not be easier.  I began making lamb just a few years ago because it has never been one of my favorite meats.  It also seemed heavy and rather gamey.

But slow roasting the meat allows all the garlic and rosemary to work magic, plus the acidity of the malt vinegar and the sweetness of the brown sugar adds the perfect balance of flavors.  It is hard to get this recipe wrong and the results are amazing.

thoughts&stories

I know many people who do not like lamb for a variety of different reasons.  For me the best tasting lamb is from New Zealand, I even prefer it over anything found locally.  If you see New Zealand lamb, don’t be afraid to buy it frozen–it may have even come over from the island that way.

Wines

Serve with Cabernet or Cabernet/Merlot blend, or Rioja Reserva
