Sunday 'Roast' Barbecued Butterflied Leg of Lamb
I asked for a small leg of lamb to feed our family of five, which the butcher duly boned. I marinaded it in 2 tsp of olive oil, the juice and zest of a lemon, 1tsp of dried thyme, 1 tsp dried oregano, a large garlic clove grated, and a pinch of pepper and salt for the best part of a day in the bag I bought it in which made it easy for the marinade to have full contact with the meat. I meant to marinade it overnight but didn't get round to it.
Cooking times came from www.beeflambnz.co.nz which recommended 30-35 minutes cooking time for a small leg, and 40-45 minutes for a large leg, was spot on. Our Sunday 'roast' turned out moist and pink all the way through.
We served it with new potatoes and French Carrot Salad.
