Roasted Leg of Lamb

Weird thing, but I always wanted to make leg of lamb. So when I opened up my CSA meat delivery and saw it in there, I was so excited. My recap, this is a tasty, easy meal to make. Just takes a some prep time. That’s it. So if you are home for the day and want to be multitask, make roasted leg of lamb.


  • 1 boneless leg of lamb
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 gloves garlic
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • pepper – ½ tsp
  • Rosemary – can used fresh 3 tbsp or dried 2 tbsp

Cut your garlic into small pieces to be inserted into the lamb. Cut slits into your leg of lamb, approximately 2 inches apart and place a small piece of garlic inside. Mix rosemary, salt and pepper together. Pour lemon juice over the lamb. Then rub the seasoning over the lamb. Let it sit in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Cook lamb for 20 minutes. Lower the temperature to 400 degrees. Cook lamb until the internal temperature is between 130 and 140 degrees. About 30 to 40 minutes longer.
