Another Pressure Cooking Hit—Leg of Lamb

 

 

To me Easter Sunday requires a great family meal, but for me it has to include some lamb.  However, after fighting a cold for nearly two weeks and knowing that I had a full day of church ahead of me, I just couldn’t see my way to cooking it the “normal way.”  So I pulled out my trusty pressure cooker and commenced my magic.

First rinse off the leg of lamb with cool water.  (It usually comes with a netting from the store.)

 

lamb-1

 

With a small paring knife cut deep but small in width “X” shapes throughout the side where the majority of the fat is.  Stuff garlic deep into these X pockets.  Then rub with a small amount of salt and black pepper.

 

lamb-3

 

On medium-high heat, sear the lamb in your pressure cooker on all sides.  (Keep the netting on until you’re finished with this process.)  Once you’ve sufficiently seared the lamb, remove it from the hot pan, return it to the heat, and slowly pour in ½ cup of cooking wine.  (I use sherry for a lamb.)

 

lamb-4

 

With a wooden spoon, scrape the bottom of the pan while the cooking wine heats up.  Be sure to scrape off all of the yummy bits of meat that was left while it was being seared.  Remove the netting from the lamb and then add one cup of water and replace the lamb in the pressure cooker.

 

lamb-5

 

Place the lid on and bring to full pressure.  Cook based on 20 minutes per pound.  When it’s finished you will indeed have a juicy lamb.  I love eating mine with mint jelly and some cooked rice.  Yummy!

yum!!!! i definately want to use my pressure cooker now!

I see many companies offering

I see many companies offering 20-30 yr life span freeze dried goods for a cost. They say "will feed a person for a year". What they don't say is how many calories are in a packet or meal. Do you know of a company that does not gouge you with high prices and tells you how many calories per packet/meal? If so could you email me back and let me know. Many thanks for all you do to help us. Also, my sister said you endorsed a certain solar generator. If so could you tell me the name of that also.

I believe the term "endorsed"

I believe the term "endorsed" to be a bit of a reach, but yes, I do love my Humless solar generators. You can get those through FiveStarPreparedness.com I believe.

I don't think there's one

I don't think there's one company that does everything right. I like the products that my husband carries (Five Star Preparedness) which is the whole reason why he carries them *grin* and I like a lot of the Thrive Life products. The solar generator we love is the Humless...you can get more info on that on Five Star preparedness as well.
