Garlic-Roasted Leg of Lamb
Why This Recipe Works
For a roasted leg of lamb recipe without the gristle or gaminess, plus great garlic flavor, we started with a meaty, boneless shank end. We separated the meaty loaves to create tidy mini-roasts from which we diligently trimmed away all visible fat and gristle, thus eliminating gamy flavors and making the roast very easy to carve once roasted. Next, we introduced garlic and herb flavors to our roasted leg of lamb recipe with a seasoned brine. We added even more garlic flavor by rubbing a roasted garlic paste onto one side of the lamb. A simple jus adds yet another layer of garlic flavor to this dish.
