What You’ll Need

  • Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to Taste


  1. Cut slits in the top of the leg of lamb every few inches, deep enough to push slices of garlic down into the meat. Season with salt and pepper generously all over the top of lamb, place several sprigs of fresh rosemary under and on top of the lamb.
