All the noms. It was so good.
Joy of Cooking says that we should expect the leg of lamb to take 8 to 9 minutes per pound to cook. Ours was a between 4 and 5 pounds, so we allowed an hour. Pulled it out, let it rest for 10-15 mins, then started to carve. The center was still pretty pink, so I checked the temp and we’d only hit 105 F internal. No bueno.
So now we’ve got it back in the oven for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, everything else is finished. We will rebuild, we will reheat.
Hope your cooking is going better than mine.
Dad stabbed it a fair bit to insert garlic.
As you can see, it’s all twine tied shut, a mix of herbs and garlic at its center.
Placed on a rack with onion pieces and carrots. Preheated the oven to 425 F, brought it down to 325 F as soon as it went in. We’ll turn it in a half hour, midway in the cook time.
