      Title: The world's finest leg of lamb
 Categories: Kooknet, Cyberealm, Meats
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      1    4 1/2 lb leg of lamb
      3    Cloves
           Garlic
           Olive oil
           Black pepper, ground
      6    Fresh rosemary sprigs
 
  Trim the excess fat on the meat, but leave a thin layer. Make 1"
  slits all over the meat, and insert a slice of garlic into each slit.
  Rub well with a liberal coating of olive oil, and then coat heavily
  with salt and pepper. Wrap securely with plastic wrap, and
  refrigerate for at least several hours ~ the longer, the better!
  
  Preheat the oven to 500F. Heat an oven-proof skillet large enough to
  hold the lamb comfortably. Remove the lamb to a platter, and pour off
  all but 1 T. olive oil. Cover the bottom of the pan with the
  rosemary. Place the lamb on top, and cover the lamb with more
  rosemary. Place in the oven, and reduce oven temperature to 375F
  after 20 minutes. Roast 40 minutes longer. To serve: take the lamb,
  in its pan, outside. Ignite the rosemary on the top of the lamb.
  Allow the fire to burn itself out. Brush off the woody stems. Let
  rest 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and enjoy!
