Chef April Bloomfield believes that a great leg of lamb doesn’t need much fuss. Here she rubs it with a simple garlic-and-rosemary paste before roasting until it’s juicy and delicious. Slideshow: More Lamb Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Let the lamb stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 400°. Using the back of a knife, smash the garlic to 
a paste. Scrape into a small bowl and whisk in the rosemary and olive oil. Season the lamb generously with salt and pepper and rub the paste all over the lamb. Transfer 
to a shallow roasting pan.

Step 2    

Roast the lamb for about 1 hour and 
15 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 130°. Transfer the lamb to a carving board and let rest for 15 minutes. Carve the lamb and serve.
