I am not going to lie! This is by far my best roasted leg of lamb ever!

I fear to order lamb at a restaurant, somehow I know that it is not going to be good if they are not Greek owner or if they are not Texas the Brazil. But so far, from all the places I have been, the lamb are pretty darn good! I bought this lamb last holiday, when Publix has it for $6.99 a pound. I have never cooked or roasted lamb before, but when I saw the price was fairly low, I bite the bullet and bought it.

I always like to try anything when it comes to cooking. Even in baking, knowing that I am not good at it, I still give it a try. Baking is very intimidating to me, but grilling and roasting are two of my best friends, as long as I have time.

At first, I thought that I have to prepare a 24 hour marinade and then do this whole day affair preparation, before I put it in the oven or grill to roast. Nope, the ingredient list is super simple here – all you need is garlic, olive oil, fresh herbs, Dijon, salt and pepper, grill and or oven.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Pat lamb dry with paper towels. Using a sharp knife, score the top side of the lamb by making shallow cuts all over.
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, rosemary, thyme, Dijon, salt and pepper.
  4. Place lamb, fat side up, on a rack in the prepared roasting pan. Spread garlic mixture evenly over the lamb, rubbing in thoroughly into the scored cuts.
  5. Place into oven and roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium, about 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes, or until desired doneness. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
  6. Serve immediately with your favorite side dish.

ANOTHER WAY!

  1. At 130 degrees F or before you reach the desired temperature, you may place it on the grill at 500 degrees F, for 5 to 10 mins. flipping it back and fort.
  2. The char from the grill makes it extra tasty. Let it rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
  3. Serve immediately with your favorite side dish
