Famous Irish dishes include Simple Garlic and Rosemary Roast Lamb and Guinness Corned Beef. The lamb recipe requires one leg of lamb, a few cloves of garlic, a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, salt and pepper to taste, and slightly more than a cup of lamb stock.
Preheat an oven to 356 degrees Fahrenheit. Chop the cloves of garlic into quarters. Place the leg of lamb into a roasting pan. Use a small knife to make holes in the meat. Insert the garlic quarters into the holes. Season the leg with salt and pepper. Roast the meat in the oven for anywhere between 25 and 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the leg is 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the lamb leg from the oven and allow it to cool. Add the lamb stock to the juices in the bottom of the pan. Whisk the stock in order to mix it with the lamb meat juices. Transfer the liquid to a small jug and use it for gravy.
The Guinness Corned Beef recipe calls for 4 pounds of corned beef brisket, 1 cup of brown sugar and one 12 fluid ounce can or bottled Irish stout beer, such as Guinness. Rinse the corned beef with cool water and pat it dry. Transfer the brisket to a roasting pan and coat it with the sugar. Pour in the bottle of beer, cover the pan and roast the meat for 2 hours and 30 minutes.
