Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
Surprised that this turned out so poorly. I love lamb and have had luck with lamb chops and rack of lamb in the past, but this was so overdone it was like shoe leather! I used a probe type thermometer to watch it cook accurately without having to poke it more than once or open the oven, so it should have been perfect. Came out right at 145 as advised for medium rare. Let it rest for 10 minutes. It was so overdone it was hard to chew. Don't know what the problem was. I like my lamb rare or at the very least medium rare but this had no pink or red, just grey the whole way through. Also, the outside was dried out and almost burnt. It seemed like the honey in the marinade carmelized then burnt. Perhaps it was my gas oven which burns baked goods, but I usually have better luck with roasts. Barely edible unfortunately. Obviously not the norm with this recipe looking at other reviews so something must have gone very very wrong.
