Balsamic Leg of Lamb

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

The longer the maranade the better the flavour. The pesto and vinegar give this a unique taste. Maranade time not included in prep time.

I found this recipe and had to try it. We only marinated it for about 5 hours and cooked it at 325 for a few hours. It was so good! It had a slightly greek taste. The meat was tender and the sauce made from the juices was very good. I plan on trying the marinade with other kinds of meat.
