Garlic-Roasted Leg of Lamb

A boned leg of lamb will be much easier to carve; tie the leg securely so that it cooks evenly. Serve with the pan sauce on the side.

  • 10 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 boned, rolled, and tied leg of lamb (about 7 pounds)

  2. Place lamb, fat side up, on a rack set on a roasting pan; spread garlic paste all over lamb. Roast in oven until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 135 degrees.for medium rare, about 2 hours.

  3. Transfer lamb to a platter, and discard string; keep warm while you make the Pan Sauce. Slice lamb just before serving.

    If you use the print icon above the recipe (rather than from your file menu) you should get a new print screen that is just the recipe. Then send it to your printer. Hope this helps!

    Why can't I copy and paste Martha's recipes? Is anyone else having this problem? It's such a nuisance printing out the whole page just for the recipe!
