Leg of Lamb
Garlic-infused roasted leg of lamb, a simple yet elegant entrée to grace the holiday table.
1 (6-pound) leg of lamb
3 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried oregano
- Cut slits in the lamb, insert garlic slices and rub with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and oregano. Place in an oven-roasting bag and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors set in.
- Once lamb has finished marinating, preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Bake, covered, for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 145°F. Uncover during the last 45 minutes so it can brown.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
