An herb rub makes this leg of lamb so good! I always knew it was Easter when my mom made it, and the whole house smells awesome when it's cooking. It's the only recipe I specifically asked for when I moved out on my own.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Mix garlic, salt, pepper, ginger, thyme, sage, add marjoram in a bowl. Stir soy sauce and vegetable oil into the garlic mixture until loosely paste-like; add the bay leaf.
  3. Cut slits into the lamb on all sides. Rub herb mixture over entire surface of lamb, massaging it into the slits. Put lamb in a roasting pan.
  4. Roast lamb until browned on the outside and red in the center, about 50 minutes for rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 125 degrees F (52 degrees C). Cover lamb loosely with aluminum foil and cool about 20 minutes before carving.

I used a variation of this rub (without soy sauce and using fresh herbs) as a quick marinade for some thick lamb sirloins. Quickly seared on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet, then finished in a 350 degree oven. So delicious! Thanks for the flavor boost with this rub recipe.
