Herb Roasted Lamb with Black Beans

  • Servings: 10
  • Course: Main Dish

Leg of lamb cooks juicy, tender, and fast in an oven bag. The bag traps in moisture and the juices, keeping the meat from drying out without any basting. Insert a meat thermometer to monitor the doneness of the roast without opening the cooking bag. Cook the spunky beans while the meat cooks. When the meal is done, there's no roasting pan to soak or scrub. Just toss the cooking bag.

Step 1

Trim fat from lamb. Cut slits in meat; insert garlic. Drizzle with lime juice. Combine oregano, coriander, thyme, cumin, chili powder and salt; rub over meat. Place the disposable oven bag in a roasting pan according to package directions, shaking at least a tablespoon of flour in the bag. Cut six 1/2-inch slits in top of bag. Place meat in bag; close bag.

Step 2

Let stand. Remove meat from bag. Skim fat from juices. In a saucepan combine 2 tablespoons of the juices and the onion; cook until onion is tender. Stir in drained beans, peppers, pimiento, cilantro, and vinegar. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook 5 minutes. Serve with lamb. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
