  • 5 pound leg of lamb
  • 1/2 cup clarified butter
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1 leek, chopped
  • 2 cups plus 3/4 cups cold water
  • 1 sprig parsley plus 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon crystallized salt
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 oranges, rinds peeled, piths removed, pulp segmented
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot mixed with 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 5/8 cup Grand Marnier
  • All-purpose flour, to dust
  • Freshly ground salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground white pepper, to taste
Directions
  • Carefully remove bones from lamb, except for the last "shin" bone. Scrape meat off bones. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a large saucepan, add 1/4 cup clarified butter and onions, carrots, and leeks. Stir and add in bones and 2 cups cold water. Raise heat and bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer and reduce by half. Season with sprig of parsley, bay leaves, and crystallized salt.

  • Heat small frying pan. Add bread crumbs and pour remaining butter on top. Cook gently. Add orange segments and continue to cook. Meanwhile, combine orange rind and 3/4 cup water in small pan and bring to a boil. Add arrowroot and sugar and reduce to low heat until it begins to thicken to a glaze. Transfer bread crumbs and orange segments to a mixing bowl. Season stuffing with Grand Marnier, salt, white pepper, and chopped parsley.

  • Stuff lamb and close pouch with skewers, lacing up with string in between, like a big boot. Make shallow diagonal slashes over top of lamb. Season flour with salt and pepper. Dust lamb with flour. Place in baking dish and roast for 1 hour 40 minutes. Remove lamb from oven and place in a bain marie (small baking dish set in a larger baking pan which is filled half way with water). Increase heat to 500 degrees F. and cook for another 15 minutes. Baste with orange glaze.
