"This recipe is great on the grill. Dad uses a grill pan, and cooks according to oven directions. Usually the ham is in the oven so the grill works for us. A wonderful addition for Easter. The lamb and ham taste wonderful together. Source: Mom and Dad.

1 (6 pound)
leg of lamb, at room temperature
fresh rosemary, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
1 (6 ounce) can
frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (1 ounce) package
dry onion and mushroom soup mix
I was curious about the lemonade/soup mix, and it was very nice! However, I did insert little chips of the garlic into the meat with a knife tip, and added some oregano and diced onion to the seasoning. I used a large can of the concentrate. I decided to marinate the roast in a large bag, turned it a few times, and refrigerated it overnight. When ready to cook, I dumped the contents of the bag over the roast before putting it into the oven. When it was done, I scooped out some of the liquid, stirred it in a pan with a bunch of ice cubes, til' the fat congealed, skimmed the fat, and used the result as a wonderful sauce - no need to thicken. Served on a platter rimmed with spinach garnished with a few slices of clementine orange, blueberries, & fresh mint - Easter dinner guests raved!
Thought this recipe came out very tasty indeed. The lemonade helps to create a crusty-goodness of sugar on the lamb. Will definitely do this again!
I loved the flavour of this recipe but 90 minutes cooking didn't get it to medium-well like I wanted at 145 degrees on my thermometer. If you want medium-well, plan for at least another half hour and maybe more. But the seasoning rocked!!
After inserting the garlic chips into the meat. Changed the rub a little. After rubbing with margarine, added salt and pepper (less salt and more pepper) and oregano seasoning and rubbed into the meat. Had a rosemary (essential) oil and added a few drops to the meat. It came out tasting wonderful especially with the lemonade concentrate. Next time will try to added garlic chips and rosemary springs into the meat and see what the result will be.
Awesome! Made this for Christmas dinner. It was a hit! Would not change a thing!
This was delicious!!!!!
Excellent! My first leg of lamb and the whole family loved it!
I was really intrigued by the combination of lemonade concentrate and dry onion soup mix and decided to try this recipe along with the Easter Leg of Lamb for overnight marination (from allrecipes as well). The lamb turned out really tender, but I'm not sure if I really like the dressing. To me there was something missing. I personally prefer the Holiday Leg of Lamb recipe (allrecipes), but my boyfriend prefers this because of the lemony flavour.
