Ingredients

  • 1 1 (5-6 pound)  trimmed bone-in leg of lamb
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  • Pat lamb dry with paper towels. Using a sharp knife, score the top side of the lamb by making shallow cuts all over.
  • In a small bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, rosemary, thyme, Dijon, salt and pepper.
  • Place lamb, fat side up, on a rack in the prepared roasting pan. Spread garlic mixture evenly over the lamb, rubbing in thoroughly into the scored cuts.
  • Place into oven and roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium, about 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes, or until desired doneness. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve immediately - and enjoy.
