Roast Leg of Lamb with a Mint Gremolita

I made this recipe again tonight and it was just as delicious as it was the first time I made it! Because we can’t have a smoker on the patio, I roasted my lamb this time.

Preheat the oven to 350.  Get out your cast iron skillet and add a couple tablespoons of fat to it…Sear all sides of the lamb until golden brown, and roast it for 45-55 minutes…OR…until your lamb reaches the internal temperature of your choice. Personally, I like it to be around 145 degrees (medium-rare).

Once your lamb has cooked, let it rest for at least 10-15 minutes. While my lamb rested, I made a delicious sauce with the drippings. I’m telling you, you will LOVE this lamb…and so will your guests!!! Go make you some!!!  It’s a perfect meal for the holidays!

Love Bake Eat

I’m a lover of all things lamb.  I could eat it every day for the rest of my life and be completely happy!  If you don’t have a smoker, fear not… Pan sear it and throw it in the oven.  It’ll be delicious! cooked lamb2 Here’s what you’ll need:
