GRILLED LEG OF LAMB W/ GARLIC

Active: 45 Minutes

Total Time: 4 Hours & 45 Minutes
Servings: 6 to 8

Instead of butterflying a boned leg of lamb and cooking it whole instead carefully cuts along the four natural muscle separations (they're easily visible) and pulls the four pieces apart with your fingers. Grilling the lamb this way is quicker, makes it easier to determine doneness, and simplifies carving. Plus the meat develops a mellow flavor and lots of delicious crust.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • One 4- to 5-pound Boneless Leg of Lamb, not Butterflied
  • 1/4 Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 Large Garlic Cloves, Smashed and Coarsely Chopped
  • Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper 

PREPARATION

Spread the lamb on a work surface. With a boning or paring knife, cut between the muscles and separate them using your fingers. Trim away any excess fat and gristle.

In a large, shallow dish, combine the olive oil & garlic. Add the lamb and turn to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 4 hours, turning a few times.

Light a grill. Season the lamb with salt and pepper; do not scrape off the garlic. Grill the lamb over a hot fire, turning often, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in each piece registers 125° to 130° for medium-rare. The times will vary according to the size and shape of the lamb leg, anywhere from 8 minutes for a 6-ounce piece to 20 minutes for a 1 1/2-pound piece. Transfer the lamb to a carving board as each one is done, add the Galimaro Sauce to coat all the pieces, cover loosely with foil and let rest for 15 minutes. Thinly slice the lamb and serve.  

Add more Galimaro Sauce to individual taste.

Make ahead the lamb can marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
