Awesome Herb Roast Leg of Lamb

"An herb rub makes this leg of lamb so good! I always knew it was Easter when my mom made it, and the whole house smells awesome when it's cooking. It's the only recipe I specifically asked for when I moved out on my own."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Mix garlic, salt, pepper, ginger, thyme, sage, add marjoram in a bowl. Stir soy sauce and vegetable oil into the garlic mixture until loosely paste-like; add the bay leaf.
  3. Cut slits into the lamb on all sides. Rub herb mixture over entire surface of lamb, massaging it into the slits. Put lamb in a roasting pan.
  4. Roast lamb until browned on the outside and red in the center, about 50 minutes for rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 125 degrees F (52 degrees C). Cover lamb loosely with aluminum foil and cool about 20 minutes before carving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Make sure you multiply the rub recipe by half the number of pounds of lamb you have; you'll want enough to put a good coat over the whole leg.

I used a variation of this rub (without soy sauce and using fresh herbs) as a quick marinade for some thick lamb sirloins. Quickly seared on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet, then finished in...

Easy and delicious.

So easy and perfect for a cold winter night! Substituted worcestershire sauce for Soy sauce due to gluten problems, worked perfectly

Loved it. A new favourite. Not sure I care to try another lamb roast recipe. This is a keeper!

AWESOME!! Tender, juicy, and flavorful!
