A Leg of Lamb has never tasted so good!

Our family richly enjoys lamb! In fact, we raise our own here on the farm however, when we need extra we turn to Azure Standard where we know and trust the quality! Today, I made up one of our favorite recipes. I took pictures so I could share it with you too! If you have a favorite lamb recipe I would love to hear!

Mrs. Joseph Wood


1 boneless leg of lamb (MT040) Thaw and remove the netting from the leg (save this. We’ll need it later) of lamb.Then open up the leg and place in your 9X13 pan


generously apply salt (BP066), pepper (HS604), rosemary (HS192)


Chop one apple (QP222)


Chop one onion (QP018)


1 cup of Basmati Rice (GR073) We have also used wild rice (GR089) or brown Basmati Rice (GR038)


Pour about have your rice  over the leg and then stuff as much of the apple and onion as you can. Then roll the leg so that it looks like this:


After you have rolled this up place your netting back over the now stuffed leg of lamb.


Once you have placed the netting back on the leg of lamb put all remaining apples, onions and rice (that you could not fit into the leg of lamb) around it in the pan. Add some more salt, pepper and rosemary  and then add 1-2 cups more of rice, another apple and another onion as well as 1-2 cups of water. It should fill your pan up about half way. Cover with foil and cook for two hours. Then open up and stir your rice mixture and add another 1-2 cups of water. Cover and put back in the oven for 2 more hours.



While baking the aroma fills the home causing everyone’s anticipation to grow! After four hours of baking covered at 350 degrees you will have a delicious, melt in your mouth meal! ENJOY!
