Anthony Bourdain is on his last few episodes of No Reservations (very sad). Last week's episode was in Sydney. Amazing food. Porteno Restaurant in Sydney serves an 8 hour wood fired leg of lamb. Awe inspiring.
So, I got my own 6 lb leg of lamb.
Schmered it with a paste of garlic, rosemary, salt and olive oil.
Cooked it covered in foil for 8 hours at 250 degrees F.
Took the foil off and cooked for 40 minutes at 475 degrees F (would reduce that time at higher heat next go around).
Served it on a marble cutting board with an arugula/lemon juice/chevre/S&P salad. Fantastic group fest.
