Herb-Farm Roast for Leg of Lamb

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Oolala

It could be for any cut of lamb. This is an old recipe judging from the color of the paper. It is an old clipping that was in my recipe box.

This is from the New York Times Cookbook. My mom always made our Easter lamb with this recipe and it is my absolute favorite!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Cut small slits in the lamb meat.
  3. Combine all ingredients except the lamb and the bay leaf.
  4. Rub the herb blend over the meat thoroughly.
  5. Place on a rack in a roasting pan. Put the bay leaf in the pan under the rack and roast uncovered until done. If cooking a leg of lamb, roast between 18-12 minutes a pound until done to your liking. Let meat rest 20 minutes before carving.
  6. This will generate a pan gravy to serve with the lamb. Just remember to remove the bay leaf.
