Who says making a feast has to take forever? For large gatherings like Passover and Easter, leg of lamb is the roast of choice, and arranged on a platter garnished with herbs, it makes a stunning centerpiece. Buying leg of lamb butterflied from the butcher will leave you time to socialize while it is slow-roasting without worrying about uneven cooking.
I've done more than a few lamb dishes dedicated to Easter, but inexplicably have never posted one for a whole leg of lamb. It's such a classic Easter menu option, and, when prepared using this method, makes for a very user-friendly hunk of meat.
I purchased a leg of lamb roast from the store recently but had no idea on how I'd cook it. After reading ideas here on Allrecipes, I came up with my own marinade. While I made this in a conventional oven, it could also be made in a slow cooker on the slow setting for 7 to 8 hours time). Hope it's a hit! There was enough marinade left that I threw it over some chicken tenders for tomorrow's dinner.
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.
The lamb in this dish is succulent and extremely tasty. Lamb is roasted to perfection with flageolet beans. Serve with rosemary potatoes, if desired. This dish makes a wonderful alternative to the classic Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner.
If you're slow-roasting lamb, it comes out so tender you don't need a knife to cut it. And when I say slow, I mean slow - 7 hours. And I am roasting the leg of lamb in the oven, not in a slow cooker. Tastes great served with Dauphinoise potatoes or mashed potatoes and vegetables.
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 rewind on a warm summer Sunday afternoon than create this laid-back, slow-roasted Greek feast?
An herb rub makes this leg of lamb so good! I always knew it was Easter when my mom made it, and the whole house smells awesome when it's cooking. It's the only recipe I specifically asked for when I moved out on my own.
A family favorite for over two decades! Growing up, Mom would always make this for dinner on Easter Sunday or New Year's Day. The bacon adds a wonderful smoky flavor to the outside of the lamb, and the garlic permeates the meat throughout. All topped off with a delectable red wine reduction. Delicious served with mashed potatoes!
We eat this every year for Easter. It is a family favorite. I normally cook half of a leg. If you cook a whole leg of lamb, double the recipe. You need to start this recipe at least 24 hours before cooking. It needs to marinade at least overnight.
This is an very simple recipe if you want to do something a bit different and unusual with a boneless leg of lamb. A boneless leg of lamb is marinated, then roasted and served with a tangy raspberry sauce.
This is a favorite boneless leg of lamb recipe, proven time and time again to be a reliable, fabulous dish. Great for rainy days when outdoor grilling is unappealing. Everything cooks in 1 pan and makes a complete meal. Superb for entertaining. We always serve with multi-grain baguette slices to enjoy the vegetable juices. Just do not plan on any leftovers! Serve with bread or baguette to soak up all the wonderful sauce.
The pomegranate and Dijon marinade in this dish serves double duty. Not only does it flavor the leg of lamb inside out, but it's then cooked down into a thick, rich sauce for drizzling over the sliced roasted lamb.
Preparing lamb at home doesn't have to be intimidating. Try this effortless yet delicious stuffed roast at your next family gathering. To further simplify the preparation, ask the butcher to butterfly the leg of lamb for you.
This slow-roasted recipe is best if domestic lamb is used, as it is much more mild and flavorful than imported lamb. I made this recipe for a friend in TN that did not have a smoker. It is based on my pulled pork recipe I perfected in a Traeger® smoker. You can garnish the final product with more chopped fresh herbs and vadouvan if desired.
The marinade creates the most intense and flavorful lamb you will ever eat. This lamb is moist and has a 'softer' flavor compared to your typical rosemary-and-garlic lamb. The marinade sounds a bit different and odd, but take a chance on it. You'll experience a succulent, tender lamb in a way you never thought possible.
