Coffee Glazed Roast Leg of Lamb
Serve this coffee-glazed leg of lamb with oven roasted vegetables and a mixed baby greens salad tossed with a citrus vinaigrette. Finish the meal with a fresh strawberry pie.
1 (5 to 7-pound) leg of lamb
1 lemon, halved
3 cloves garlic, slivered
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons TASTER'S CHOICE® 100% Pure Instant Coffee
4 cups prepared TASTER'S CHOICE® 100% Pure Instant Coffee, made very strong
- Preheat oven to 300°F (150°).
- Rub lamb with one half of lemon. Using a sharp knife make 1-inch cuts into lamb and insert garlic slivers; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle coffee granules on top of lamb. Cut remaining lemon half into slices and place on top of lamb. Place on rack in shallow roasting pan.
- Roast lamb for approximately 35 minutes per pound for well-done, or to desired degree of doneness. During the last hour of cooking, pour prepared coffee over lamb and baste every 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
