Grilled Leg of Lamb with Hot Red Pepper Relish

We love this dish. Everything can be made ahead and yet it cooks rather quickly. The lamb needs to marinate overnight, and the relish can be made 1 month in advance. This sauce is so good, we use it on all kinds of meats and seafood. The recipe makes about 3 cups of sauce. Time does not include marinating time.

Ingredients

8 lb
leg of lamb, trimmed and butterflied
2
onions, chopped
6 large
garlic cloves, chopped
3/4 c
red wine vinegar
1/2 c
honey
1/3 c

HOT RED PEPPER RELISH:

2 lb
red bell peppers, finely chopped (about 4 cups)
2
onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
2 c
cider vinegar
3/4 c
sugar
2 tsp
mustard seeds
2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
crushed red pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut lamb into 2 pieces where there is a natural separation in meat and put each piece into a large sealable plastic bag.
2
In a food processor, puree all remaining ingredients (except relish) until smooth and divide marinade evenly between plastic bags. Seal bags, pressing out excess air, and put in a shallow baking pan. Marinate lamb, chilled, turning bags once or twice, at least 8 hours or overnight.
3
Prepare grill.
4
Discard marinade and grill lamb in batches if necessary on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 7 to 10 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer lamb to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes.
5
Serve lamb, thinly sliced across the grain, with relish.
6
Hot Red Pepper Relish:

In a heavy saucepan, stir together ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour, or until reduced to about 3 cups. Relish may be made 1 month ahead and chilled, covered.
7
Serve relish chilled or at room temperature.
