A very juicy leg of lamb... Your family will love this one!leg of lamb

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (5 1/2 pound) boneless leg of lamb, tied in netting
  • 20 cloves garlic, or more to taste
  • garlic powder, or to taste
  • 10 fresh rosemary sprigs

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. Cut 20 deep slits evenly spaced around the leg of lamb without cutting the netting. Stuff a garlic clove into each slit. Rub garlic powder over the lamb. Slice rosemary sprigs under netting evenly around the lamb. Place lamb into a roasting pan.

  3. Roast in preheated oven until reddish-pink and juicy in the center for medium-rare, about 2-2 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Cover in aluminum foil; rest meat until thermometer reads 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) before carving.

Raving Reviews

  • "Not only does this place have great meats, I just had their wings today...Holy Cow! Sometimes when you walk in to the store they will have a tray of their wings for customers to sample. So I tried one, then another and then I bought 2 dozen. Very flavorful, just the right amount of spice off the grill. I ate 5 more before I got home. I've been going to Baumanns for about 20 years. They never fail to have a great selection of steaks (super beef tenderloin), fantastic bacon, fresh ground chuck and the best quality lump charcoal for my grill. And the prices meet and typically beat the local grocery prices. Baumann's deserve a great review. "
