Directions:
Preheat oven to 550. Rinse and wipe the leg of lamb dry. Make small slits in the fleshy part of the leg and insert wedges of whole garlic into the slits. ( this is called studding with garlic) Mix the salt, pepper, olive oil, crushed garlic and rosemary leaves together and rub well into the meat on all sides. Place the leg of lamb on a rack in a large roaster and place in the oven for 45-55 minutes. This will give you a nice crust on the lamb. Reduce your oven temperature to 250 and continue to roast slow until desired internal temperature is reached
