Cook's Notes

Making Gravy
While lamb is resting, remove rack from roasting pan and place pan across 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add wine to the drippings in the pan, bring to a simmer, and reduce by half, scraping up any brown bits with a wooden spoon. Whisk in 1 1/4 cups broth and return to a simmer. Whisk together remaining 1/4 cup broth and flour in a small bowl, then whisk into wine mixture. Simmer until thickened slightly, less than 1 minute. Add any accumulated juices from platter or carving board and pour through a fine sieve into a bowl. Ladle into a gravy boat and serve with lamb.

    Great description for first time leg of lamb roasting! We skipped the gravy and added alot more dijon and some honey/bread crumbs to the rub so it didn't need it. Using the leftovers for lamb cucumber wraps and moroccan stew from other recipes found on here!

    I followed this recipe for a 3.62 lb lamb roast so I halved most of the ingredients. I must say, it was DELICIOUS! I marinated my roast overnight, and also added fresh mint along with the fresh rosemary. I would highly recommend this recipe. It is a bit time consuming, but it was definitely worth it.
