Chef John's Roasted Leg of Lamb

Roast Greek Lamb with Tzatziki, Roasted Vegetables, and Greek Salad

Sunday roasts and summer are two of my favorite things. But when it's too hot outside, the last thing you want is a full roast with gravy and all the trimmings. It just seems wrong. It's also far too hot to be in a kitchen for long. Greece is famous for its lamb dishes. So what better way to unwind on a warm summer Sunday afternoon than to create this laid-back, slow-roasted Greek lamb feast served with the perfect sides?

Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Balsamic-Fig-Basil Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 131
Dried plums and currants tossed with salted, roasted almonds, creme de cassis, and mint is the stuffing for my rolled lamb roast. It's a very easy way to dress up a lamb roast during the holidays. The simple herb rub adds just the right amount of seasoning along with fresh garlic inserted into the top of the roast. My balsamic basil fig sauce creation drizzled over the sliced lamb is the perfect finish touch and extremely flavorful thanks to the fresh basil.
