Roast Leg of Lamb with Roasted Root Vegetables



Roast Leg of Lamb

Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 1 7-pound leg of lamb with bone
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper

Directions

Lamb: Preheat oven to 400°F. Score the lamb with a sharp knife with marks about 1 inch apart and about ¼ inch deep. In a small bowl combine the olive oil, garlic and rosemary. Use your hands to rub the mix evenly over the surface of the meat. Season with salt and pepper, place in a roasting pan, and roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Reduce temperature to 275°F and cook for about an hour. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the leg to check for doneness. For rare, pull the lamb out of the oven at 125°F; for medium, remove at 145°F. Let the lamb rest 20 to 30 minutes before carving.
