READY IN: 2hrs 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Dry the lamb with paper towels and place on a rack in a heavy roasting pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the glaze ingredients; mix well.
  • Spoon the glaze evenly over the lamb; pour 2 cups water into the pan.
  • Roast the lamb for 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the lamb reads 135° for medium-rare (check periodically to make sure there is some liquid in the bottom of the pan and add more water if necessary).
  • If you prefer lamb more well don, cook to 140° to 150° for medium.
  • Remove the lamb and place on a carving board; let rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Place the roasting pan on top of the stove and add a bit more water; cook over medium heat, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings; degrease the pan juices and pour into a gravy boat.
  • Care the lamb into thin slices and serve with the juices.
