Country Style Lamb
- 2 lb leg of lamb
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion , medium
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 5 oz grated Pecorino cheese , fresh
- 1 pinch chilli pepper powder
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
Wash and carefully dry the lamb leg. Peel and chop the onion.
Arrange the lamb leg in a baking dish. Rub with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and chili pepper powder, to your liking. Bake in a 400°F (200°C) oven for about an hour, turning the meat from time to time.
Once the meat is done cooking, drizzle with a couple drops of lemon juice and cover with the pecorino.
Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil so that the lamb doesn’t dry out or brown excessively. Also be careful not to overcook the meat.
