Roman Lamb

3 cloves garlic
leg/shoulder of lamb
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. rosemary
1/2 cup oil
3 onions
1 can tomato puree
1 can water
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
2 tbls. vinegar
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tbls. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut three cloves garlic into slivers and place them in slits in the leg/shoulder of lamb. Season the lamb with salt, oregano and rosemary. Pour over 1/2 cup oil and place in 400 oven for 1 hour. Chop up 3 onions and fry in oil till lightly browned, then mix with the remaining ingredients.

Pour this mixture over the lamb in the roasting pan, then cover with a lid and cook in a very slow oven 250 for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Baste occasionally and serve with the sauce in which it has been cooked.

If neccessary, thicken this gravy with 1 tsp. maizena, mixed to a paste with water.

Special Hint: Use the same sauce with brown lamb chops, or ribs - delicious
