We know you might be wondering why we’re sharing this recipe in the middle of June, but we can attest to the fact that leg of lamb is delicious any time of the year, not just during the holidays.
Now that lamb is back in stock, we wanted to share our family’s favorite recipe with you, using our grass-fed, 100% organic boneless leg of lamb.
Elmwood Roast Leg of Lamb
1 boneless leg of lamb (around 4 lbs or so) trimmed and tied
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and make sure the rack is in the middle position.
Combine the garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and olive oil in a small bowl. Rub all over the lamb.
Put lamb in a roasting pan and roast for 1 ½ to 2 hours, until the lamb is medium rare. It’s helpful to have an instant read thermometer handy to temp the lamb in the center – you’re looking for it to read 135 degrees F.
Remove the lamb from the oven and let rest for 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite sides. We like to serve leg of lamb with fingerling potatoes, polenta or even mac and cheese!
