Marinated Grilled Lamb Recipe

It's fun to fire up the grill on Easter, especially if you live in a cold climate! A mild marinade we created fabulously flavors lamb.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 1-1/2 hours + standing YIELD:10 servings


  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 boneless leg of lamb (3 to 4 pounds), trimmed and untied
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • Additional salt and pepper


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine first nine ingredients; add lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate 4 hours.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect medium heat. Drain lamb, discarding marinade. Place rosemary sprig on lamb; roll up and tie with kitchen string, leaving a portion of the sprig exposed. If desired, sprinkle with additional salt and pepper.
  • 3. Grill lamb, covered, over indirect medium heat 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove from grill; tent with foil and let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Discard rosemary sprig before serving. Yield: 10 servings.
