Leg of Lamb and Manchego Cheese Smashed Potatos

This was a huge hit at my dinner party last night!

Leg of Lamb
2 cups red wine (pinot noir)
2 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onions
1/2 cup chives
1/3 cup of rosemary
1/3 cup of chive
1/4 cup of thyme
salt and pepper to taste

Manchego Cheese Smashed Potatos
cups of Manchego cheese (shredded)
Baby red potatos (cut in halves or fourths)
salt and pepper to taste

First, mix all the ingredients for the leg of lamb and marinade for 2-3 hours before baking. Bake at about 400 degrees for about 30-45 mins wiht marinade. Then, boil the red potatos until somewhat tender (you'll see the skin beginning to peel off), drain the water, and set aside. Shred the entire manchego cheese wedge, like below. Then mix all ingredients for the smashed potatos in a large pot and smash it altogether. No need to puree, leave some potato chunks.

Voila! Dinner is served!
