Yield: 6 Servings
|1||Shoulder of lamb, 7 lbs|
|Salt and pepper, to taste|
|1||Clove garlic, minced|
|½ cup||Shredded celery leaves|
|⅓ cup||Cubed green pepper|
|2 tablespoons||Tomato sauce, or to taste|
Preheat oven to 325F. Rub the meat all over with salt and pepper. Place slivers of garlic between the bone and flesh. Place meat on a rack in a roasting pan, surrounded by celery leaves and green pep per. Allowing 20 min per lb, roast in oven. About 1 hr before it is done, smooth tomato sauce over top of lamb. This will make a crusty skin and add flavor to the gravy.
To make the gravy, drain off all the fat, and remove lamb to a warm place.
Add a little water to the pan, leaving in the vegetables, and boil down on top of stove.
Serving Ideas : with asparagus, roasted new potatoes and mint jelly.
