1 (4 pound)
leg of lamb, deboned and tied
ground black pepper
garlic, cut into slivers
1 (15 ounce) can
I'm giving this 5 stars on ease! The flavor is also very good. I doubled the garlic, used finely crush dried rosemary and sprinkled with some garlic salt after pouring on the tomato sauce. I suggest you keep a thermometer in the meat and keep an eye on it. Everyone's oven is a little different. 4 hours would have been way past well done for my roast. This is a fabulous roast for Sunday supper! I'll do it again and again..rave reviews from the family. Garlic, Italian herbs, cayenne, salt and olive oil on baby red potatoes is a great compliment..put into oven last hour of lamb roast. EASY and elegant
I cooked this leg of lamb exactly as the preparations directions described, even though I question a baking time of 45 minutes @ 375 and then another 15 minutes. The leg of lamb was raw and it ruined our New Years Day dinner. I was very disappointed as was my family. You need to be a little more specific for baking time
Easy and turned out fabulous! Family enjoyed. Added small red potatos to roasting pan. Will repeat again and again.
This lamb does not cook in 1 hour. It takes about 2 1/2 hours to cook.
rarely have I had such a treat for my taste buds. I made this dish on a whim and now my family wants med to make it atleast twice a month
Very good, first time to eat lamb, was a little nervous but it turned out very good. I cooked it longer than the recipe suggests (2lb. roast in a crook pot for 4 hours).
This really is a special dish. It made my apartment smell so good, and I had my mother-in-law asking for the recipe.... that's how cooking should be!
I agree with another reviewer that cooking times "are never exact" as the meat and your own oven can vary by many minutes; always use a meat thermometer and cook lamb to 13-135 letting rest about 15 minutes out of the oven. Lamb shhoud be "crusty" on the outside and slightly pink in the middle. I thought this was a great basic recipe. I do like to roast lamb on a rack, over a pan which adds a "convection effect" on a standard oven. Even using true convestion, this meathod has turned out best for me. Again, nice recipe.
