Lamb was a special treat for my family when I was growing up. I've had this recipe for more than 30 years. I hope it becomes a favorite for your family, too. —Bonnie Silverstein, Denver, Colorado

  • 3/4 cup Marsala wine or 1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup white grape juice and 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 boneless leg of lamb (2-1/2 pounds), rolled and tied
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, quartered


  1. In a small bowl, combine the wine, garlic and oregano; set aside. Rub oil over lamb, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan; spoon some wine mixture over roast. Set aside remaining wine mixture.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), basting occasionally with some remaining wine mixture. Remove from the oven; cover loosely with foil for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, pour pan drippings into a measuring cup; skim fat. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute mushrooms until tender. Add pan drippings and any remaining wine mixture; heat through. Slice lamb and serve with mushroom sauce.
