  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary

  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless butterflied leg of lamb

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a bowl, mix the garlic, rosemary, thyme and oil. Season the lamb with salt and pepper and rub the herb oil all over the meat. Let stand at room temperature for 1 1/2 hours or refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

  2. Bring the lamb to room temperature if necessary. Light a grill. Grill the lamb over moderate heat, turning once, until browned outside and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the meat registers 125° for medium-rare, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes. Thinly slice the lamb across the grain and serve.
