DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl, then rub them into the lamb.
  • Cover loosely and let rest for 4 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F).
  • Place the lamb in a shallow roasting pan.
  • Pour the lemon juice and broth into the pan.
  • Place the lamb in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 350 degrees(F).
  • 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).
  • The internal temperature will rise as it rests.
  • *1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes can be used as an alternate for the chilies.
  • If you prefer the lamb less rare, roast it 10 minutes longer.
