Even though this could easily be served as a main course, if you cut the lamb into bite-size morsels it makes a lovely starter or tapas dish.[wpurp-searchable-recipe]Tapas: Lamb with Tomatoes, Olives, and Garlic - - boneless leg of lamb (~3 pounds), lemon zest (from one lemon), lemon juice (from 1/2 a lemon), assorted olives, grape tomatoes, garlic (crushed), fresh rosemary (remove from stems), olive oil (extra virgin), butter (1/4 cup), xanthan gum, Dry the lamb thoroughly with paper towels and score the fat in a cross pattern.; Cover the bottom of an insta-pot (pressure cooker) with olive oil, and add 1 tsp salt and a few grinds of black pepper.

I made this last night and it was delicious! I got a 3.5lb boneless leg of lamb from Costco. The only problem is the rest of my family didn’t like it. Well, my kids definitely did not, my husband ate some but wasn’t thrilled with it. Well, more for me then I guess! I highly recommend it! Here it is when I first put it in the Insta-pot. No after photos though as it gets a bit crazy around here right before dinner time.
