Printable Recipe: https://www.dimitrasdishes.com..../greek-roast-leg-of-
1 leg of lamb, bone-in, about 7-8 pounds
10 or more garlic cloves, cut into slivers
2 onions, quartered
salt (about a half teaspoon per pound)
freshly ground black pepper
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 cup of water
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons dried crushed oregano,
Preheat the oven to 350 °F, 180 °F.
Use a sharp knife to cut slits into the leg of lamb. Stick the garlic slivers into the slits.
Place the lamb in a large roasting pan.
Combine the lemon juice and olive oil together and pour it all over the lamb. Season the lamb on both sides with salt, pepper, and oregano.
Add the rosemarry sprigs and the onions to the pan. Pour the water into the pan.
Cover the lamb with a sheet of parchment paper and then tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake for 3-4 hours or until the meat is soft and almost falling off the bone.
Remove the foil and parchment and place the pan back into the oven and onto the middle rack. Turn the broiler element on and broil for 5-10 minutes or until the top is golden. Keep a close eye on it so that the lamb does not burn.
Serve with roasted lemony potatoes, tzatztki, and Mediterranean Rice pilaf. Enjoy and Kali Orexi!
Marinate the meat and insert the garlic cloves the day before serving. Keep it refrigerated and allow the meat to come to room temperature before roasting.
