Lamb is one of my favorite proteins. It is rich in flavor and extremely versatile, and packed with health benefits.
A big part of getting a good cut of lamb, is knowing where it comes from. With Mountain States Rosen Company, you can ensure that your food comes from healthy breeds of sheep raised by multi-generational families in the U.S., instead of New Zealand or Australian lamb which is shipped from more than 10,000 miles away. These sheep roam mountainsides and valleys and breathe fresh, clean air, drink spring water and exercise in nature. They graze on a natural, indigenous diet of wild grasses, herbs and flowers, topped off with wholesome, vitamin-packed grains, so that every bite you take is consistently smooth and juicy.
The lamb is flavorful enough to complement bold herbs and spices, but not too strong. It has a velvety tenderness, with an enticing aroma. Combined with fresh breadcrumbs, minced garlic, and freshly picked herbs, not only will your roast smell amazing, but it will taste amazing!
This Herb-Crusted Leg of Lamb will make the perfect holiday meal. It is easy to prepare and roasts in about an hour. Serve it with a side of mashed potatoes or polenta, a veggie, and a salad and you have an amazing gourmet meal cooked in your own kitchen!
