Lamb Leg with Sweet Potatoes

A whole roasted lamb leg really is a delight! If you want to get the best out of it, cook it on the stove over high heat for a few minutes to obtain that nice, crispy crust. Next, slide it into the oven for at least an hour. The meat turns out crispy on the outside, and moist and juicy on the inside.
