Ingredients

  • 1 leg of lamb (5 to 6 pounds)
  • 3 garlic cloves, slivered
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) plum jam
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup white grape juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes

Nutritional Facts

4 ounces cooked lamb with 1 tablespoon sauce equals 300 calories, 11 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 104 mg cholesterol, 253 mg sodium, 25 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 26 g protein.

Directions

  1. Remove thin fat covering from the roast. Make slits in meat; insert a garlic sliver in each. Place on a rack in a large roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, for plum sauce, in a medium saucepan, saute onions in butter until tender. Add the jam, chili sauce, grape juice, lemon juice and allspice; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  3. Baste roast with sauce. Bake 1 hour longer, basting occasionally, or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium, a meat thermometer should read 160°; well-done, 170°), basting occasionally with plum sauce. Bring the remaining sauce to a boil; stir in parsley. Let roast stand for 10-15 minutes before carving. Serve remaining sauce with roast. Yield: 11 servings.
