    Default Ro-Teed Lamb

    My sweetie brought home a nice little lamb leg roast and requested that I cook it on Sunday. Yes, Dear.

    Soooo Sat night I injected after a liberal sprinkle of Greek Seasoning. Let it all sit in the fridge overnight.



    The lamb, EVOO, red wine vinegar and Konriko Greek Seas. Mixed the latter three for an injection marinade.





    'Bout done!







    My plate with maters and Italian green beans sauteed in EVOO and fresh garlic.

    Mercy! This may just be the best lamb I've ever had! A smashing success! Or so I thought.

    Mrs. Shoots HATED it! She absolutely HATED it! And she's the big lamb-lover in the family! I felt bad because it was her idea and she bought it. And she was so looking forward to it and I ruined it for her.

    She was very sweet about it; didn't biatch, or give me a hard time about it. Oh well... I'll know what NOT to do next time.

    I had two plates!

    Thanks for lookin'.

    What was it that turned the Mrs off on it? Looks good but if the Queen ain't happy - the whole kingdom ain't happy.

    Thanks for sharing a smashing success / fail all in one post

    She didn't like it injected. We usually get these butterflied and marinate overnight with EVOO, garlic, fresh rosemary mint and Dijon. Then grilled and lightly smoked.

    She thinks the injection was bad and it was too smoky. I don't know how it could be over-smoked with only an hour or so. I thought it was in keeping with our usual "light smoke."

    She also blames the rotisserie. "It should just be grilled!"

    I bet if I used the usual marinade w/o injection and spin it w/o wood chunks she'd like it.

    So sad. I must admit, the inject didn't seem to have done much for the appearance of it.

    Still looks like it would eat well though.

    Yeah, made it look overcooked, but it wasn't.

    Looks good but, if Mama ain't happy.

    I bet you're right.
