Roasted Leg of Lamb

Roasted Leg of Lamb, Steamed Broccoli, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

this time i didn't marinate the lamb and we enjoyed it better.

brandon and i had our butcher cut 2 pounds of boneless leg of lamb and here is our recipe.

preheat oven to 425 degrees.

I covered the lamb with a blend of lamb seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic pepper, and dried rosemary, then i cut a few small slits in the leg and poked garlic cloves and thyme into them - then I seared the meat side where the butcher cut to seal the meat. - high heat for about 1 minute.

place on rack in pan then put thermometer into the thickest part of the lamb.

put in oven roast for 20 minutes - then turn heat to 325 degrees and roast until thermometer reads 135 degrees- this will take about an hour - but check often - (the lamb will continue to rise in temp out of the oven to the perfect 140-145 degrees for meduim rare. )

let the lamb rest for at least 20 minutes before cutting twine and carving.
Plate Up and enjoy!
