“This recipe is great on the grill. Dad uses a grill pan, and cooks according to oven directions. Usually the ham is in the oven so the grill works for us. A wonderful addition for Easter. The lamb and ham taste wonderful together. Source: Mom and Dad. ” - by Rosemary Mom
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Spread butter generously over the lamb, and distribute garlic clove halves over the meat. Sprinkle with rosemary and pepper. Place the lamb on a rack inside a roasting pan.
- Roast the lamb in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
- Mix the lemonade concentrate and dry soup mix together in a bowl, pour over the lamb, and roast an additional 30 minutes. A meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lamb should read 120 degrees F/58 degrees C for medium-rare or 145 degrees F/68 degrees C for medium-well. Allow the roast to stand for about 20 minutes before slicing.

"I was curious about the lemonade/soup mix, and it was very nice! However, I did insert little chips of the garlic into the meat with a knife tip, and added some oregano and diced onion to the seasonin..." See moreg. I used a large can of the concentrate. I decided to marinate the roast in a large bag, turned it a few times, and refrigerated it overnight. When ready to cook, I dumped the contents of the bag over the roast before putting it into the oven. When it was done, I scooped out some of the liquid, stirred it in a pan with a bunch of ice cubes, til' the fat congealed, skimmed the fat, and used the result as a wonderful sauce - no need to thicken. Served on a platter rimmed with spinach garnished with a few slices of clementine orange, blueberries, & fresh mint - Easter dinner guests raved!"
"Thought this recipe came out very tasty indeed. The lemonade helps to create a crusty-goodness of sugar on the lamb. Will definitely do this again!..." See more"
