Roast Leg of Lamb
As far as I am concerned there is nothing more delicious or festive than a perfectly cooked leg of lamb. If you want to please traditionalists, you might have some mint jelly (available in some supermarkets or gourmet stores) to pass on the side. Don’t forget to count carbohydrates for the jelly if you choose to use it.
- ½ leg of lamb, about 4 pounds
- ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Salt to taste
1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
2 Place the lamb in a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.
3 Combine the parsley, garlic, rosemary, pepper, and salt. Rub all over the lamb.
4 Roast 1 hour and 10 minutes for rare, or longer to desired doneness.
