  • Place the leg of lamb into a large roasting pan. Distribute potatoes, carrots, and celery around the meat. Slice small slits all over the surface of the lamb and stuff them with garlic cloves. Sprinkle oregano and rosemary over meat.

  • Mix olive oil, lemon juice, wine, and mustard together and drizzle over the meat and vegetables.

  • Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Uncover and continue baking until browned, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lamb should read at least 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).

  • Let lamb cool for 5 minutes. Serve with the vegetables.

This will be a favorite. I left out the wine but used the lemon juice and olive oil along with some garlic and onion powder as a 24 hour marinade. I placed the lamb and marinade in a roasting pan with the vegetables. The cooking instructions were spot on. The lamb was perfectly done and didn't spatter up my oven. The potatoes soaked up the lemon and garlic flavor and were delicious. Read More
