Serving Size: Serves 2-4 Ingredients
  • 4 1/2 lbs Lamb Leg (bone-in)
  • 1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsps Salt
  • 1 tsps Black Pepper
  • 1 T Pastrami Seasoning
  • 1 tsps Dried Rosemary
Directions
  • Trim your leg of any excess fat. Rub with Olive Oil, Rosemary, Pastrami Seasoning*, Salt and Pepper. (*Recipe follows)
  • In a 425 degree pre-heated oven, Place your lamb on a roasting rack. Cook 10 minutes. Turn the heat down to 350 and continue cooking until the internal temperature hits 125 degrees (about 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size of your lamb leg). I had a 4.5 pound leg and I cooked it for 50 minutes. You don't want to overcook the meat, so start checking the temperature after 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked through, remove from oven and let rest at least 20 minutes before carving.
