I love lamb. This was posted in the PARADE (Sunday insert). I'm looking foward to trying it as it doesn't seem that difficult. I look forward to feedback :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl, then rub them into the lamb.
  2. Cover loosely and let rest for 4 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F).
  4. Place the lamb in a shallow roasting pan.
  5. Pour the lemon juice and broth into the pan.
  6. Place the lamb in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 350 degrees(F).
  7. Roast the meat, basting occasionally, for 1 hr 40 minute for medium-rare meat, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the leg registers 140 degrees(F).
  8. The internal temperature will rise as it rests.
  9. *1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes can be used as an alternate for the chilies.
  10. If you prefer the lamb less rare, roast it 10 minutes longer.

This is really wonderful! The smell of garlic & ginger wafting through the kitchen - mmmmm! De-fatted the sauce and poured over the meat which I served on mushroom rice. Will definately make again - thank you!!
