Anyone here watches Naked and Afraid? I have been watching this Discovery show since it first started. I mainly like to see what the naked people catch and cook to eat. A lot of times they just go hungry. What a fantastic way to lose weight right?
While watching it I always think to myself, I am not sure I would make it past the first day! I mean in my normal day to day life, if I don’t get my breakfast by 915 am, you do not want to be around this gal. Then when I don’t get my tea, boy I get snarly! I simply won’t survive.
What’s even worse is I get cold in 80 degree weather with my clothes on! Can you imagine without my clothes? OYE
So last Sunday here in good old MN it was 84 degrees…beautiful! Today…54 degrees and cold. I think at some point along the way I have come to accept our rigid weather changes or rather embrace it.
So while it was chilly outside yet deceivingly sunny, I decided to take a stab at this leg of lamb that has been sitting in my freezer for a few weeks. I did not want to go outside to grill and I did not want to heat up the whole house by lighting the oven for hours. So my next option was to throw it in the crockpot.
Now how shall I marinate this 2 pound leg of lamb so that I can use it in multiple ways. I decided to make a homemade jerk seasoning rub that is low maintenance and i can use it on other meats if their are left overs.
I grilled my herbs on the broiler, but you can lightly char them on the stove top on your open flame as well. Then the easy part is you throw everything in your magic bullet or food processor and walla!
I literally placed my seasoned leg in the crockpot on low before i went to bed and turned it off when I got up the next day!
Very easy and low maintenance. Give it a go and if you have left over jerk it goes great on chicken wings!
