Roast Leg of Lamb Recipe

Roast Leg of Lamb Ingredients

  • 1 leg of lamb
  • ½ cup oil
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1½ tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt

How to make Roast Leg of Lamb

  • Preheat the oven to 375º C. In a food processor, process the garlic cloves along with the salt and pepper. Now add in the olive oil and process at low speed until everything is well combined and it has emulsified.
  • Trim the leg of lamb of any excess fat and sinews and then place the lamb, fat side up in a roasting tin. Pierce the lamb randomly with the sharp point of a knife and rub in the olive oil and garlic mixture over it. Make sure that you push the mixture inside the lamb and add the rosemary sprigs. Roast the lamb leg in the oven for around 2 to 2½ hours. When the meat is cooked, transfer the roasted leg of lamb to a platter and keep it warm.
  • Pour the dry red wine on the roasting tin and place the tin over medium heat. Scrape the bits of browned meat that is stuck on the bottom of the roasting tin. Add the chicken stock and cook until the mixture has reduced to almost half. Just before you serve the lamb, slice the roasted leg of lamb into thick slices and drizzle with the sauce on top.
