Just a few questions
by: Gerhild

Hi Rosario,

Thanks for your recipe for stuffed leg of lamb. It sounds interesting, but I have a few questions which probably have to do with the translating.

In Step 1, do you cut the lamb and then stuff with the chopped vegetables and bacon?
In Step 2, I don't understand the "a pot of water pressure". Are you cooking the lamb in water on the stove until the lamb is cooked? Can you give some idea for about how long it will cook?
In Step 3, what temperature is the oven at?

Again, thanks for sending this in. Lamb is also a popular meat to eat, especially in northern Germany.
