What you’ll need
6 lb Boneless Leg of Lamb
11 cloves of garlic 1/2 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup of whole grain mustard 1 lemon juice
10 sprigs of rosemary, thyme leaves 1 1/2 tbsp of sea salt, 1 tbsp black pepper
3/4 dry wine 1 1/2 lb yukon potato
First of all: Prep
1 Poke your lamb and insert garlic
2 Make your blend
Using a sharp knife I cut about 15 incisions 2 inches deep through the fat cap on top of the meat and I inserted some garlic cloves divided. I made a paste in a blender with the garlic, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, rosemary leaves, thyme, salt and pepper. Then I rubbed it all over the lamb and let it marinate overnight.
Have your lamb room temperature and preheat your oven to 425 F
Place the lamb on a roasting rack in a roasting pan and pour the wine into the bottom of the pan . Roast for about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and reduce heat to 325 F
Arrange potatoes in the roasting pan and place the lamb on the rack on top. Roast for an hour and 45 mins basting the lamb with the roasting liquid halfway through.
Transfer the potatoes to a platter, baste the lamb again and return lamb to oven. Continue to roast basting often until it reaches an internal temp of 130 F for medium rare. As a general rule , the lamb should roast 20 mins per lb for medium rare
Let it rest for 20 min and then carve, slice it, and serve with the potatoes, and juices and spices from the pan.
