7 Hour Slow Roasted Lamb

7 Hour Slow Roasted Lamb
Last week, we had a houseguest.  Our friend Olivier came to visit from Poitiers, France.  

Upon his arrival, I made a Marinated Lamb Roast for dinner and while enjoying our meal, Olivier spoke of his family's lamb roast recipe.  

Imagine, a family recipe from France!  Can this get any better?  It was such a neat idea that I asked Olivier if he would make this for us prior to his return home so I could share his recipe on my blog.  He agreed and also shared his family's ratatouille recipe which I'll also be sharing on my blog ;) 

This recipe took 7 hours to roast the lamb at a very low temperature, however, the end result was ever so worth the time and because of the low temperature, the house never got extremely hot.  The meat was so tender, full of flavour and delicious.  Preparation was very quick and all he had to do is turn the lamb upon each hour and slowly raise the heat.  
INGREDIENTS:
Lamb Roast
Salt & Pepper
7 cloves of Garlic
Olive Oil

  9. This lamb roast reminds me of my mom's roast. She also use to insert cloves of garlic into the meat (french influence in Morocco)with the addition of some other spices...c'est presque la meme chose:). Maybe I should share my mom's recipe on my blog...soon.Meriem
