  1. Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Cut 12-14 slits 1/2 in. deep in roast. Combine garlic, thyme, marjoram, oregano, salt and pepper; spoon 2 teaspoons into the slits. Brush roast with oil; rub with remaining herb mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 2-3 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees F; medium, 160 degrees F; well-done 170 degrees F;). Let stand 10-15 minutes before slicing.

I made this in the crockpot and it came out AMAZING. I coated the (5.5lb) lamb in the seasonings, then put it in the crockpot with enough water to cover about 3/4 of the way up the side of the ...

My first time ever to even see a Leg of Lamb to cook. My family here in Egypt fix it quite often. They loved it. Was tender and they all said it was the best they've eaten. Quite a complimen...

Yummy! I also slow cook it in the crockpot. Added some water and white wine to keep it moist.

Wonderful recipe with a few seasonings that I haven't used in the past but found they added such a nice flavor. We pulled it at 140 as my family enjoys it a bit more on the pink side. The drippi...

I never liked lamb but I liked it after using this recipe. I made it for my family on Easter. What a hit.
