- 1 each Leg of Lamb (Boneless), approximate weight is 5 to 6 lbs.
- 1⁄3 cup Olive Oil
- 1⁄4 cup Char-Crust Seasoning, Original Hickory Flavor
- 1⁄4 cup Garlic, Fresh, minced
- 2 Tbsp. Rosemary, Fresh Leaves, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. Oregano, Fresh Leaves, chopped
- 2 tsp. Thyme, Fresh Leaves, chopped
- 1 tsp. Anise Seeds, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. Black Pepper, coarsely ground
- Pre-heat a medium size skillet on medium high heat.
- Rub the exterior of the lamb leg liberally with the olive oil.
- Sear the meat on all sides until medium brown in the skillet.
- Remove the meat from the skillet and allow to cool.
- Mix together the Char-Crust seasoning with all the remaining herbs and spices and apply liberally to the exterior of the meat.
- Place the seasoned lamb leg in a roasting pan and roast in a 350 F oven to your preferred doneness. Roasting the lamb to medium will take approximately 1 3/4 hours or check the internal temperature to gauge doneness. A medium done lamb will register approximately 140 F to 145 F. Remove the lamb from the oven and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes before carving.
