  • Roasting pan with a rack
  • Meat thermometer
  • Kitchen twine
  • Basting brush


  • 1 leg of lamb about 5-6 pounds
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken or beef broth for basting


Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).

Prepare the Lamb:

  • Rinse the leg of lamb and pat it dry with paper towels.
  • Make small incisions all over the lamb with a sharp knife.
  • In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper to form a paste.

Season and Marinate:

  • Rub the herb and garlic paste all over the lamb, making sure to get it into the incisions.
  • Allow the lamb to marinate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors infuse.

Tie the Lamb:

  • If the lamb is not already tied, use kitchen twine to secure it into a neat, compact shape. This helps in even cooking.

Prepare the Roasting Pan:

  • Place a rack inside the roasting pan to lift the lamb slightly off the bottom.
  • Add 1 cup of chicken or beef broth to the bottom of the pan. This will help keep the lamb moist and create flavorful pan juices.

Roast the Lamb:

  • Put the lamb on the rack in the roasting pan.
  • Roast in the preheated oven until the internal temperature reaches your desired doneness (for medium-rare, aim for 145°F or 63°C).
  • Baste the lamb every 30 minutes with the pan juices to keep it moist.

Rest and Serve:

  • Once the lamb reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute and keeps the meat juicy.

Carve and Enjoy:

  • Carve the lamb into slices, and serve it with your favorite side dishes.
