Dijon-Garlic-Rosemary Rubbed Lamb Roast
*Recipe courtesy of Ronco.com
Rotisserie oven directions
- 1 clove garlic, cut into slivers
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 leg of lamb (4 1/2 – 5 pounds), boned and tied
- Combine the garlic, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, rosemary, ginger and olive oil in a small bowl. Add lamb and turn to coat with marinade. Cover and chill at least 6 hours or up to 1 day turning meat over several times.
- For best results use a rotisserie oven to prepare the lamb roast. Rotate the lamb on the spit rods for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 135 to 140 degrees for medium on the thermometer, basting several times during the last 10 minutes. Untie, slice and serve!
If you only have a conventional oven, try the recipe below for the Rosemary Rubbed Lamb.
Conventional oven directions
- 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 8 lamb loin chops (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
- Combine the rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Pour oil over both sides of chops; rub with herb mixture.
- In a large skillet, cook chops over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
