1 (5 1/2 pound)
boneless leg of lamb, tied in netting
garlic, or more to taste
garlic powder, or to taste
fresh rosemary sprigs
Very juicy leg of lamb! My leg was 4.75 lbs. and it took exactly 2-1/2 hours at 325 to reach 130. Perfect! I did rub the leg with a bit of EVOO and vinegar before adding the garlic (I used fresh - inside and out) and rosemary. I threw some potatoes in during the last hour of cooking, and when I took the roast out to rest, cranked up the oven to 425 to crisp up the potatoes a bit. So delicious! This made a really nice Sunday night dinner.
thank you hkwilkins1!! this was a very very easy recipe and produced a succulent and very flavorful leg of lamb. i used a boneless leg of lamb from costco and it was excellent. i pretty much followed the instructions to a t and was rewarded well for my efforts. i made a sauce to go with consisting of orange marmalade, hot pepper flakes, fresh mint, and red wine vinegar (a recipe that accompanied one of chef johns grilled lamb chop recipes) and it was excellent as everything from him is. i love lamb but i remember my mom's (sorry mom!) well done, kinda dried out lamb, with that green jelly, from easters past. not any more!
Very good and easy recipe. Followed directions to a T and my 4-1/2 roast came out perfect.
