Evan's Roast Leg of Lamb

Cooking method: Roasting
Serves 6 to 8
Total preparation time: 3 hr. 30 min.


2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 medium cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
1/4 tsp. pepper, freshly ground
1 (7 to 9 lb.) Bone-In Leg of Lamb


1. Combine the olive oil, mustard, garlic, rosemary, and pepper to form a paste. Brush the mixture all over the leg of lamb. Let rest in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before roasting.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Transfer the leg of lamb to a roasting pan. Roast in the middle of the oven for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, beginning to check for doneness after 1 hour. The roast is medium-rare when an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the roast registers 135°F.

3. Remove from the oven, and allow the roast to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
