How to prepare Grilled Marinated Leg of Lamb ?

Preparation:       

 Preparation time: 8 hrs.

Cooking time: 30 mins

Serving: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano (preferably Greek), crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (4 1/2- to 5-lb) butterflied boneless leg of lamb, trimmed of fat
  • 3 10- to 12-inch metal skewers

  Special Equipment

  • A large (2-gallon) heavy-duty sealable plastic bag; 3 or 4 (10- to 12-inch) metal skewers

 Instructions:

  1. Combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a sealable plastic bag. Add lamb and seal bag, pressing out air. Turn bag to coat lamb, then put the bag in a shallow baking pan and marinate, chilled, turning bag over occasionally, at least 8 hours.
  2. Bring lamb to room temperature, about 1 hour, before grilling.
  3. Prepare grill for cooking over direct heat with medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas)
  4. Remove lamb from marinade (discard marinade) and run 3 or 4 skewers lengthwise through lamb about 2 inches apart. Grill on a lightly oiled grill rack, covered only if using a gas grill, turning over occasionally and, if necessary, moving around on grill to avoid flare-ups, until thermometer registers 125 to 128°F, 8 to 14 minutes total for medium-rare.
  5. Transfer lamb to a cutting board and remove skewers. Let lamb stand, loosely covered with foil, 20 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise to 135°F while meat stands.) Cut across the grain into slices.
