Roasted Leg of Lamb
Posted on February 03 2015
ROASTED LEG OF LAMB RECIPE
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 bone-in leg of lamb (~5 lbs)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Combine the garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary. With a sharp knife, cut slits all over the lamb, then rub all over with olive oil. Rub the garlic and spice mixture evenly over the lamb; leave on the counter at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 450F.
- Place the lamb in a roasting pan, fatty side up, and bake for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 325F and continue to roast until the lamb reaches your desired temperature: 130F for Medium Rare, 140F for Medium.
- Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before carving. To carve, make cuts every 1/4″ or so perpendicularly along the leg down to the bone, then cut along the bone to remove everything in one fell swoop. From there, carve off any remaining meat from the bone.
