  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Cut 20 deep slits evenly spaced around the leg of lamb without cutting the netting. Stuff a garlic clove into each slit. Rub garlic powder over the lamb. Slice rosemary sprigs under netting evenly around the lamb. Place lamb into a roasting pan.
  3. Roast in preheated oven until reddish-pink and juicy in the center for medium-rare, about 2-2 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Cover in aluminum foil; rest meat until thermometer reads 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) before carving.

Couldn't be easier, except getting the rosemary threaded through the netting, but I don't have much patience :) I just laid it on a bed of rosemary sprigs and placed more on top. Came out perf...

Family loved this for Easter. I couldn't find a big roast so used two less than 3lbs each. Reached 130 in just about 2 hours at 325. Keeping garlic cloves whole made it interesting to get the ...

Wow, that WAS easy. Turned out perfectly. Love this recipe.

Great garlic-Rosemary flavor. Served with mint jelly and horseradish sauce--take your pick. Mashed potatoes and asparagus with a N.Y. cheesecake from this site--outstanding.

This is a delicious and flavorful recipe. That I will use over and over again during the winter. I only had a 3lb boneless leg of lamb so I cut the cooking time down to 1 1/2 hours-could have g...
