Recipe: Leg of Lamb Wrapped In Leeks


  • 1 - 6# bone in leg of lamb
  • 10 leeks – tops cut off
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup roasted garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • ½ cup coarse pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped oregano
  • ¼ cup chopped thyme
  • 1 cup red wine


  • Pre heat oven to 250 degrees
  • Combine the garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme and olive oil and make into a paste. Rub all over the leg of lamb
  • Blanch the leeks in boiling water for 2-3 minute. Wrap the leg of lamb in the leek tops, using olive oil to help the leeks adhere to the meat
  • Set the lamb on a baking dish. Add the red wine to the pan and put the lamb in to the oven.
  • Cook until the internal temperature of the meat is 135 – 140 degrees for medium rare – approximately 2 ½ hours.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before carving. The internal temperature will rise another 5-10 degrees.
  • Shave the lamb and serve

They complain that the seoasn is too long now and about having to back up from a Monday night game on a Friday, imagine throwing a mid week game into the mix. If you remember the Amco Cup you would remember that most teams rested their better players and played a lot of reserve grade U/23 s players until it got near the finals. Also, can't see it being picked up by free to air tv so it would end up on Fox just like Monday Night Football.
