Roasted Leg of Lamb with Herbes de Provence
Who’s ready for a delicious and easy recipe for Roasted Leg of Lamb? Are you unsure about how to create a delicious lamb dish this Easter?
Lamb is a favorite of many people at Easter dinner. It is also easy to prepare and fun to cook! Using a good dry rub is my favorite way to cook a leg of lamb. One of my favorites, Herbes the Provence by Healthyonyou.com is the perfect subtle spice for a delicious roasted leg of lamb.
Lamb loves bold flavors; this rich spice blend does just that! Healthyonyou.com Herbes de Provence adds lots of flavors and a pleasant aroma. One of my best ways to cook lamb is to first brine the meat, add a spice rub that will add layers of flavor, and then roast it to perfection.
For perfect medium rare lamb, 15 to 20 minutes per pound in a 325°F oven is a good rule of thumb. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the meat. This leg of lamb recipe was inspired by a French provincial way to cook a Gigot d’Agneau (Leg of Lamb). The original leg of lamb recipe is the classic Sunday roast. In France, the shank bone is not removed, but it cut through for easier handling. The roast is often served with green of fava beans.
For my recipe, I opted to brine the meat with a mixture of two kinds of vinegar, salt, and crushed hot peppers and seasoned the meat with the Herbes de Provence from Healthyonyou.com.
The Herbes de Provence from Healthy On You is an “intoxicating blend of flavors reminiscent of southern France. Just the right mix of savory spices that is subtle yet versatile enough for both meat and vegetables.” (healthyonyou.com) It is a must have in your pantry all year round. It is an excellent spice blend for your vegetables, meat and poultry dishes.
You can purchase a leg of lamb bone-in or boneless at your local supermarket. The brine is easy to prepare, the seasoning is effortless, and the overall process and the result is a juicy, tender and delicious meat dish for your Easter or any Sunday dinner.
