Great app. However the ads are obtrusive and unwanted. If I wanted ads I'd watch TV.

I cooked this 2 days ago it was brilliant! Garlic was just right!

I reduced the salt by a tablespoon and added a 1/2 cup or so red wine to deglaze the pan after removing the lamb to rest. (Nice sauce) This was a wonderful and easy recipe and I will definitely make it again :o)

Love this recipe; it's simple and "exquisite" as my husband called it (and he is hard to please in the food dept!)! My only suggestion is to cook the lamb in as shallow a dish as possible, as it browns better that way. I've even used a cookie sheet before and it has worked great!

This is a fantastic recipe! I have made it once with a boneless leg and once with a shoulder, otherwise preparing the lamb exactly as described. Both cuts worked equally well. It was very simple, very tasty and most delicious. I served the leg for a dinner party to some non lamb eaters and it was a big hit. Would definitely make again.

Easy to make and delicious. May need to adjust the temp to the size of the leg.
