Roasted leg of lamb for Easter

Nothing reminds me more of Easter than roast leg of lamb. The meat has a specific flavour and smell and the meat is so tender and juicy and it's a perfect recipe for any festive day, especially for Easter.

It's easy to make and low in calories compared with other meats like pork for example. The best lamb meat is the early spring lamb, the older the animal is the tougher the meat will be.

What you need is:

1.5 kg leg of lamb with bone ( less if it's boneless)
50 grams chopped parsley
4 sliced cloves of garlic
100 grams bacon cut in small pieces
3 table spoons sunflower oil
salt & pepper to taste
200 ml semi-sweet red wine
100 ml vegetable stock or water
2 table spoons butter
kitchen string
