Baaah ~

I love lamb.
Lamb chops, leg of name it..I'm nom'n it.

My mother used to make the most outstanding Greek style leg of lamb , to this day I miss it and she's been gone 30 years .

When SU and I went out to Daly City for my birthday a number of years ago, knowing of my love of all things lamb-ish, my father and step mother made me leg of lamb for my birthday dinner which coincided with Easter that year. They got to watch SU's skill at whipping up gravy from el scratcho..lovely dinner all the way around. I do see that this recipe does not call for rinsing the lamb in vinegar prior to cooking so I am going to check into that and will post it here also...

Ok..there is the discussion over at chow hound, and they talk about more than rinsing. It seems that I recall that ebil stepmother once told me it tenderizes the leg oh lamb.

And yet..I also loved Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop...

Yeah..let's not go there.
