Recipe by An_Net

This is my favourite way to do roast lamb. Juicy and very succulent. We like our lamb very rare so you may want to adjust the cooking time.

YUM YUM! My husband has always said he didn't care for Lamb. I saw a beautiful leg of lamb at the store so thought we'd try it for a change. He raved about how delicious and tender the meat was. True winning dish that we'll have again. BTW 200-225 C = 400 degree F. We also like it rare so the timing was perfect.
