 Categories: Greek, Meats
      Yield: 8 servings
      1    Leg of lamb, about 2 kg
      3    Garlic cloves
      2    Lemons (juice only)
           Freshly ground black pepper
      1 ts Dried rigani or oregano
      2 tb Butter or margarine
      1 c  Hot water

  Wipe leg with damp cloth.  Cut small slits over surface of lamb.  Cut
  garlic cloves into slivers and insert in slits.  Rub entire surface
  with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with herb
  and place in a roasting pan.  Cook in a moderate oven for 1 hour.
  Drain off fat and add hot water to pan.  Spread butter on lamb and

  to taste.  Turn during cooking to brown evenly.  Allow lamb to rest
