We had a gorgeous BBQ leg of lamb for dinner last night. My sister did cooking and I marinated it. The day before I put the leg of lamb in the marinade and turned it a couple of times.
1 carton (about 3 cups) of Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp (2 or 3 cloves) of garlic
the juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp of Herbes de Provence
salt and pepper
Stir the marinade together and roll the lamb in it to completely cover. Marinade up to 24 hours (at least 2 or 3 hours) in the fridge. Tie the leg up with kitchen twine so it will cook evenly.
Heat up your BBQ or oven to about 400 degrees. Cook 2 hours or until it is done to your liking. I like medium rare - still quite pink. When you are BBQing, heat one side of the BBQ and place roast on the other side (indirect heat) with the lid down. Check and turn a couple of times. Let it rest about 20 minutes before slicing. The yogurt marinade is very flavourful and keeps the leg very moist. Enjoy!
