Roast Leg of Lamb

On our farm, we pride ourselves in the quality and flavor of our pasture-raised lamb. If you haven’t grown up cooking lamb, it might feel intimidating to start with something as large as a roast, but it’s actually quite simple to make. Succulent and infused with flavor, your roast success begins with high quality meat, raised with care and attention to good practices. Watch the video below to learn how to prepare your roast and use the featured products links to source the ingredients you need to get started. Enjoy!

Recipe

  • Leg of lamb (boneless or bone-in), thawed
  • olive oil
  • onion, sliced
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • cumin
  • thyme
  • rosemary
  • garlic, chopped (other spice ideas: oregano, crushed red pepper)

In a roasting pan (with lid or use tin foil to cover), lay the sliced onion as a bed. Massage olive oil into the outside of the roast, rubbing down with salt, pepper, and cumin. Crush rosemary and thyme onto of the roast and then layer with the garlic. You could also use whole garlic cloves and cut slits in the meat, slipping them inside. Cover and roast at 350 degrees for 1.5 to 2 hours (until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees). Allow to rest, covered, for 15 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
