Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Roast Lamb

For our Easter dinner, I adapted this recipe for roast lamb. John prefers his meat on the pink side; but you could easily roast it longer.


Roast Lamb

In a large freezer bag, combine:  2 cups plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, 4 cloves of garlic (pressed), and the zest of 2 lemons.  Add one boneless lamb roast, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon pepper, 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, 4 cloves of garlic, and the zest of 2 lemons.  Mix well with an immersion blender.  

Put roast in baking pan, and spread olive oil mixture on top.  Cook at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes per pound, depending on your pinkness preference. 
Thanks for my family, who are free with compliments and help.  (And that's no April Fool's joke!)

  2. That looks and sounds really good, although I look at lamb a little differently now that I've been to my brother's farm to hold a bunch of them. I'm not going to go vegetarian or anything, but it will be a while before I eat lamb again. Give me a few months and I just may try it.
