Prep Time:

15 minutes (plus 12 to 24 hours curing time)

Cook Time:

3 to 3 1/2 hours minutes


12 - 16 servings


1  6 to 7 pound  leg of lamb, trimmed to 1/8 inch of fat

1/4  cup  olive oil

8 to 10  cloves  crushed garlic

1  tablespoon  lemon zest (1 lemon)

2  tablespoons  chopped fresh oregano leaves

2  tablespoons  chopped fresh thyme leaves

2  teaspoons  kosher salt

2  teaspoons  coarse-ground black pepper


Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl; blend well.

Place lamb on a clean surface, fat-side up. Spread rub over lamb. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to "cure."

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from lamb.

Place lamb on a rack in a shallow pan, fat-side up. Roast 25 to 35 minutes per pound. Remove when a meat thermometer inserted in center (not touching bone) reads 135 to 145 degrees for Medium-Rare doneness. Let stand 15 minutes; carve and serve
