Place garlic in slit pockets in lamb. Place lamb in baking pan and brown for 40 min., turning over half way through. (Cover if necessary for 5 -10 minutes to stop spattering.)
Lower oven to 325. Salt and pepper lamb and remove some of the garlic. Cook 30 minutes per pound.
Par boil (or microwave 5 min.) potatoes in some beef bouillon. Reserve broth for gravy.
