Uaineoil Faoi Chrusta (Crusty Roast Lamb)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Meat, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Shoulder of lamb, 4 lb
  • 1 c Fresh breadcrumbs
  • Pinch mixed herbs
  • 2 tb Butter, soft
  • 1 1/2 lb Potatoes, peeled, sliced
  • 1 Lg onion, diced
  • 1 Lg cooking apple*
  • 10 oz Chicken stock


*Peeled, cored and sliced. Wipe the lamb over, and cut criss-cross slits
around the top. Mix together the breadcrumbs, herbs, butter, salt and
pepper. Rub the mixture onto the top of the meat, pressing down well so
that it sticks. Fill the bottom of the roasting pan with the vegetables
and apple, mixing them and the seasoning well. Put the joint on top, then
pour the stock into the pan, but not over the meat. Cover loosely with a
piece of foil and bake at 400 F for half an hour. Then lower the heat to
350F, and cook for a further 20-25 minutes to the pound. Take off the foil
for the final half hour, and check that the vegetables are nearly cooked.
Finish the cooking without the foil, to let the top get brown and crusty.
