    threeovens's Note:

    The leg of lamb is studded with garlic and marinated in a combination of garlic, mustard, rosemary, white wine, lemon juice, and olive oil to ensure there is no gaminess. This recipe is for a butterflied 3-lb boneless leg of lamb. The meat will be tender and full of flavor. We like our lamb medium rare, so you may want to cook yours a little longer.
