This size leg of lamb serves 6, with leftovers. Timing above doesn't include the hour the leg of lamb needed to come to room temperature before roasting, nor the resting time before cutting into it
Tips for making the roasted boneless leg of lamb:
  • Do not add salt to the rub or the lamb before cooking as it will draw out moisture
  • Put all the herbs and spices in a mixing bowl to combine before rubbing on the lamb
  • Dribble olive oil on the lamb and rub it in before adding the herb mixture and garlic for better coverage
  • Set the lamb on thickish onion slices as the meat drippings will make them delicious to eat
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature.  You want it to read 125 - 130 degrees for medium rare.
  • Note that its temperature will rise another 5 degrees as you wait to cut the roasted boneless leg of lamb
