Roasted Leg of Lamb with Pomegranate, Garlic & Herbs – Happy Easter Indeed

Posted on

I’ve done more than a few lamb dishes dedicated to Easter, but inexplicably have never posted one for a whole leg of lamb. It’s such a classic Easter menu option, and when prepared using this method, makes for a very user-friendly hunk of meat. 

 

 

 
 
Ingredients for 1 leg of lamb (about 8 portions)
1 leg of lamb (without the shank), boned, and butterflied
For the wet rub:
1/4 cup pomegranate molasses
4 cloves coarsely minced garlic
1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
1 tsp Aleppo pepper, or other red pepper flakes to taste
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried mint
 
*Marinate lamb overnight, and roast at 350F. for about 1 3/4 hours, or until the internal temperature of 135-140F. is reached, for medium-rare to medium.
