Step 1

Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).

Step 2

Using a sharp knife, make small incisions all over the leg of lamb. Insert slices of garlic into each incision.

Step 3

Rub the lamb with olive oil, then season generously with salt, pepper, and chopped rosemary.

Step 4

Place the lamb on a rack in a roasting pan, and roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare, or 145°F (63°C) for medium.

Step 5

Remove from the oven and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
