This 5-star review of our leg of lamb shares simple cooking instructions:

Made this leg for Christmas dinner and it was a hit. Day before roasting I made slits in leg and put slivers of garlic into the meat. The day of cooking I rubbed the meat with olive oil, salt and pepper and topped with fresh rosemary. I put roast in convection oven and set temp probe to 150 degrees and meat came out perfect. Sliced after 20-minute rest and the meat was mediun-rare and delicious.

Rolling and tying the roast allows for even cooking and makes carving a cinch.


About Our Grass-Fed Lamb

Our 100% grass-fed Dorset breed lambs are raised on pasture in Australia using traditional methods. The lambs graze freely on rye and clover on the lush, mineral-rich plains in the Colac, Victoria, region in Southeast Australia, creating a clean taste that is much milder than that of other Australian lamb. In keeping with our principles, our Australian lamb is also free from antibiotics and hormones. The stress-free environment produces tender and mild meat, proving that the best practices can be tasted on the plate.
