Recipe Ingredients:

1 whole bone-in leg of lamb (about 7 pounds)

Olive-mustard coating;
45 kalamata olives, pitted
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Place olives, garlic, rosemary, mustard and pepper in a food processor. Process to a smooth paste and gradually add oil.
  3. Spread mixture all over the fat side of meat and place fat side up in a roasting pan.
  4. Roast for about 1 hour 20 minutes. Check the internal temperature and remove lamb when temperature reaches 125°F (51.6°C) to 130°F (54.4°C) for medium rare. Let meat rest 10 to 15 minutes to complete its cooking (meat temperature will rise another 5°F to 10°F). Carve and serve.
