Roast Leg of Lamb


  • 2 to 3 kgs trimmed bone-in leg of lamb
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper


Step 1 – Preheat oven to 180°. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.

Step 2 – Using paper towels, pat lamb dry. Using a sharp knife, score the top side of the lamb by making shallow cuts all over.

Step 3 – In a small bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, rosemary, thyme, Dijon, salt and pepper.

Step 4 – Place lamb, fat side up, on a rack in the prepared roasting pan. Spread garlic mixture evenly over the lamb, rubbing in thoroughly into the scored cuts.

Step 5 – Place into oven and roast for about 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes, or until desired doneness. Leave to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

Step 6 – Serve immediately with mini hasselback potatoes
