Method
Roasted Leg of Lamb

Step 01

Set the lamb in a rack inside a roasting pan, before rubbing the lamb with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper for a balanced flavour.
Step 02
Broil the lamb for 5 minutes or until lamb leg looks seared and browned. Position a rack below so that the top of the meat is a few inches from the broiler element. Flip it over and broil the other side for another 5 minutes.
Step 03
Mince the garlic and rosemary. This is the marinade.
Step 04
Top it with garlic and rosemary, remove the lamb out from the oven and set oven to 160˚C. Reposition the oven rack to the middle of the oven.
Step 05
Flip the lamb leg over and again rub the top with the marinade. Cover loosely with foil and cook for an hour.
Step 06
Remove the foil after an hour, set temperature to 50-80˚C, and let it rest inside the oven for another 20 minutes making it medium-rare to medium. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving it.

Take the chilled lamb out of the refrigerator an hour before cooking. This enables the lamb to cook faster.
