Roasted Leg of Lamb with Potatoes, Apples, & Citrus

We love hearing from our network of chefs!  Recently, Ryan DeNiccola, Executive Chef of chi Spacca wrote us about his experience with our Navajo-Churro lamb.

I enjoyed the Navajo-Churro lamb legs.  They ended up being fantastic.  I loved the richer, gamey flavor they had.  We de-boned them, rolled into a roast, slow roasted in the oven, and finish on the grill with pecorino polenta and rosemary lamb jus.  The wine dinner customers loved it.  It’s a great story to tell, too!

Ryan’s recipe sounds delicious!  We love the simplicity of Roasted Leg of Lamb.  Try this recipe for a citrus twist on an old classic.  The key is marinating the meat overnight and cooking the roast low and slow.  This recipe is great in the oven, and also does wonderful on the grill.

Ingredients

1 5-7 lb lamb leg
1/2 lb fingerling potatoes
2 medium apples
2 lemons
1 orange
Freshly ground black pepper
Kosher salt
2 cups white wine

  4. Wrap tightly with foil and place on a baking sheet.
  5. Allow 24 hours to marinate in the refrigerator.

Roast

  1. Remove from the refrigerator 2-3 hours before roasting, allowing the legto come to room temperature.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 250°F.
  3. Unwrap the leg from the foil, and place back on the baking sheet or in a roasting pan if you have one large enough.
  4. Add the fruit and juices from the marinade to the pan. Pour one cup of wine into the bottom of your pan and tent the leg with foil.
  5. Place the leg in the oven and reduce temperature immediately to 200°F.
  6. Roast the leg for 5-6 hours keeping a close watch. When the bottom of the pan is dry add the second cup of wine.

But bacon cooked sous vide overnight is the first I’ve ever tasted that delivers on that moist-and-crisp promise. It’s crispy on the exterior as you bite into it, but it quite literally melts in your mouth, like the finest confit pork belly, as you chew. Here’s how to make it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound (450g) thick-cut bacon, still in its package (see note above)

DIRECTIONS

  1. 1.

    Preheat a sous vide water bath to 145°F (63°C). Place Image bacon, still in its original plastic packaging, directly in water bath and cook for at least 8 and up to 48 hours. When ready to serve, remove from water bath and proceed immediately to step 2, or chill in refrigerator or freezer for later use (see note above).

  2. 2.

    To finish, preheat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add bacon and cook, pressing gently with a press or the back of a spatula (just enough to keep it mostly flat), until brown and crisp on the first side, about 2 minutes. Turn bacon and briefly cook on second side, just to remove pale color (about 15 seconds) commande viagra en france.

  3. 3.

    Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to remove excess fat, then serve immediately.

For the Ultimate Butternut Squash Soup, Deep Roasting is Key

If there’s one soup that’s a harbinger of colder months, it’s butternut squash. Like clockwork, September rolls into October, and bowls of puréed sweet winter squash roll onto menus nationwide. It’s practically a restaurant cliché, which is why the first two times I published butternut squash soup recipes on this site, I went out of my way to make them decidedly unlike the classic—in one case blending it with ancho chilies for a Mexican twist, and in the other, embracing a more savory and less sweet character by infusing it with Japanese flavors. (They’re both really good, you should try them.)

But even I have to admit, those variations probably aren’t what most people are hoping for when they seek butternut squash soup recipes. Heck, they’re not even what I’m expecting most of the time. So it’s time to tackle the real-deal version. You know the one: it’s sweet, silky smooth, and lightly spiced—about as close to pumpkin pie in a bowl as you can get without having to wholesale jerseys admit that you’re eating dessert. You can garnish it with anything you please, but a dollop of whipped cream (or an enormous mound, as I’m prone to do) is the true sweet spot.

For the most part, the method is as simple and straightforward as any puréed vegetable soup: Start by sweating aromatics, add your main ingredient and any seasonings you want, then purée. Sure, there are a few more details here and there, but you get the idea.

The key with butternut squash soup is to take every opportunity to enhance and accent the squash’s natural sweetness, without resorting to cheats like adding sugar. (For the record, I have nothing against adding sugar when needed, but I try to make out my ingredients work for me first, only correcting with adjuncts as a last resort.) That means dicing the squash to maximize its surface area and then roasting it for a long time.

I can’t stress this last point enough. The more deeply you can brown the squash in the oven, the more intense and caramelized its flavor will be. And since there’s no real risk of overcooking the squash aside from flat-out burning it, you can let it go as long as necessary to hit your target.

20161025-butternut-squash-soup-vicky-wasik-1.jpg

Roasting the squash until very deeply browned is the secret to bringing out its sweetness.

For this recipe, I add some diced carrots to the squash. In most puréed vegetable soups, I’d just cook the carrots with the rest of my mirepoix and aromatics, right in the soup pot. But since butternut squash soup is all about sweet roasted flavor, I opted to capitalize in the carrot’s browning power, too.

The rest of the steps are fairly simple. I begin by melting butter in a large saucepan, waiting until it browns lightly before adding sliced onions and garlic, which I cook until softened and lightly golden. Browning the butter adds a nutty richness that enhances the sweet squash flavor, while giving the onions and garlic a little color builds their sweetness as well.

Then I add the deeply hang roasted squash and some chicken or vegetable stock (I’ll even deglaze the baking sheet used for roasting the squash with some stock to pick up any caramelized bits), and simmer it all together with thyme and a bay leaf until all the vegetables and herbs are very soft.

Blending the soup 1 is the final step. You can make any blender work for this, even low-powered ones or hand blenders that leave the texture a little bit chunky; passing the soup through a fine-mesh strainer can help smooth things out somewhat. For the smoothest texture, though, a high-powered blender is the way to go. I partly hate writing that, because I know how expensive the good blenders are—it’s an investment that can more than sting. But I’ve also been cooking for enough years now to know that there’s no match for the smooth, silky textures you can achieve in a high-powered one.

I garnish my soup with a pinch of both cinnamon and nutmeg for some classic warm spice. I also add a dollop of heavy cream whipped with some some sour cream, to introduce just a hint of TD bright tanginess that contrasts with all the sweet, nutty, earthy flavor.

20161025-butternut-squash-soup-vicky-wasik-4.jpg

Top it with a few crispy leaves of fresh sage frizzled in hot butter and you’ve got the platonic ideal of a wintertime bowl of soup. It’s okay to embrace its familiarity—after all, there’s a reason some things become so popular.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (2 1/2 pound/1kg) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large (8-ounce; 215g) carrot, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 7 tablespoons (100g) unsalted butter, divided (see note above)
  • 1 large (8-ounce; 215g) yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups (1l) homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock, plus more as needed
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) sour cream
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 20 fresh sage leaves (optional, see note above)

DIRECTIONS

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Toss squash and carrot with olive oil and arrange on 2 rimmed baking sheets, being sure not to overcrowd the sheets. Roast until squash and carrot are very well browned on a couple sides, about 1 hour; use a thin metal spatula to turn pieces two or three times during cooking. Set aside

  2. 2.

    In a large saucepan, cook 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat until just starting to brown. Add onion and garlic, lower heat to medium, and cook, stirring, until soft and lightly golden, about 10 minutes; lower heat as necessary to prevent burning.

  3. 3.

    Add squash and carrot to saucepan and remove from heat. Pour 1/2 cup stock into each baking sheet and scrape up any browned bits, then pour into saucepan. Add remaining stock, thyme sprigs, and bay leaf and return to medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, then lower heat and simmer until vegetables are very soft, about 10 minutes. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf.

  4. 4.

    Using a blender or stick blender, blend soup until completely smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Return soup to saucepan and thin, if necessary, with additional stock until desired consistency is reached. Keep warm.

  5. 5.

    Meanwhile, in a stand mixer, or using a handheld mixer or a whisk, beat cream and sour cream with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt, until stiff. Set aside.

  6. 6.

    If making sage leaves, melt remaining 5 tablespoons butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat, swirling gently, until foamy and just beginning to brown. Add sage leaves, swirling to submerge and cook until frizzled, about 15 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sage to a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle very lightly with salt.

  7. 7.

    Ladle soup into warmed bowls, spoon dollops of spiced whipped cream into each one and top of frizzled sage, if using. Serve right away.
