How to Prep the Leg of Lamb:
- Pat the lamb dry with paper towels. Right before seasoning with the herb mixture, score the lamb fat that wraps around the meat. (This will ensure that the spices really penetrate the meat). Just make sure not to slice too deep. Then roll the lamb and use kitchen twine to truss the meat.
How Long to Roast this Herb-Roasted Leg of Lamb:
- The timing for this recipe depends on two things: whether the lamb is bone-in or boneless, and the size of the leg. The larger the leg, the longer it will take to roast. Bone-in will take a bit longer as well, because the bone does affect the way the temperature is distributed, but it will cook evenly. Boneless lamb will cook faster, but you will need to truss the meat for even cooking.
- As with this meat, personal preference will determine how long you cook the lamb. However, check after one hour, and then continue roasting, checking frequently, until the lamb reaches your desired internal temperature.
- Rare: 125°F
- Medium-Rare: 130°F to 135°F
- Medium: 135°F to 140°F
- Well-Done: 155°F to 165°F
- Just a heads up:
- The internal temperature of the meat will rise 5-10 degrees after removing it from the oven or grill. So adjust accordingly by pulling your lamb from the heat when it is 10 degrees lower than your desired doneness.
- The preparation of the DIY Garden Herb Salt is not included in the prep time for this lamb recipe.
