Roasted Boneless Leg Of Lamb

The Easter Season may have passed but now is still a good time to enjoy some “Bible Food!” Roasted boneless leg of lamb seasoned with rosemary, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and garlic is a succulent Easter delight that truly celebrates Spring. To compliment the lamb, serve it with tiny potatoes along with dijon vinaigrette sprinkled rosemary and asparagus for a skinny Post Easter Feast!

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 3 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt, more or less to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 1/2 – 4 lb uncooked trimmed lamb leg, boneless, rolled and tied

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and place a rack in the pan.
  2. Combine crushed garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, mustard, olive oil, salt and pepper; mix well and rub mixture all over lamb.
  3. Roll the lamb and use butcher’s twine to tie it together and place it on the prepared roasting pan.
  4. Roast in the oven until medium-rare and a meat thermometer inserted in center reads 135-140ºF, anywhere from 70 minutes and up depending on the size of your roast.
  5. Remove the lamb and let it rest about 15 minutes on a cutting board. Keep in mind the temperature will increase a few degrees once it rests.
  6. Slice lamb into 1/4-inch thick slices and place on a serving platter
