Bourdain's 7-Hour Leg of Lamb

queue | Dec 5, 2005 03:30 PM

I've been wanting to try it for a while. The basic recipe involves putting the lamb in a dutch oven with wine and aromatic veggies, sealing the lid with a paste made from dough, and cooking for 7 hours at 300F. What could be simpler?

But I confess to some doubt that it is really possible to cook a leg of lamb at 300F for seven hours without it's turning to leather. Has anybody done this? Would a lower temperature be better? Any recommendations as to the type of lamb that would produce the best results? I mean, obviously, bone-in, but are there certain varieties of lamb that are better suited to this cooking style? Thanks a lot.
