Sorrel Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Blackberry Shiraz Glaze

This recipe is a conglomeration of various recipes found via internet research. It's different enough from any of the recipes I looked at that I'm calling it an original. If it isn't, don't sue me, just tell me.

Sorrel Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Blackberry Shiraz Glaze Recipe

  • For the glaze:
  • 1 bottle shiraz (Purple Moon from Trader Joe's or other cheap, fruity shiraz)
  • 2 handfuls ripe blackberries
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon sugar, depending on ripeness of berries
  • For the lamb:
  • 1 3-5 pound boneless leg of lamb, fat trimmed
  • 4-5 leaves sorrel, sliced thinly
  • salt and pepper to taste
Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350. Coat inside of lamb with salt, pepper, and sorrel. Roll lamb and tie with kitchen string. One end of the lamb will be nice and neatly packaged, one end will look "flappy." This is fine, it won't affect the cooking. Cook for about 1 hour (the general rule is 30-35 minutes per pound).

While the lamb is cooking, combine wine, sugar, and blackberries in a sauce pot and bring to a boil. Use a whisk to mash the berries and to stir occasionally, reducing mixture by roughly 2/3, or until syrupy.

Use a brush to coat the lamb in glaze, then cook for another roughly 30 minutes, re-glazing regularly. When the internal temperature of the meat reaches 150-155 degrees, remove from oven and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Slice and serve.

Helpful Hints

Next time I may apply the glaze throughout the whole process. The flavor of the glaze wasn't a strong as I expected, nor did it get any "crunch." Those aren't necessarily bad things, but it wasn't exactly what I expected.
