  • Make short, deep slits all over lamb with a sharp knife and fill with garlic slices. Rub the lamb with oil and sprinkle with oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Transfer to the prepared pan.

  • Roast the lamb for 1 hour. Add water to pan and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 135 degrees F for medium-rare, 15 to 20 minutes more. Transfer the lamb to a serving platter, tent with foil and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.

  • Meanwhile, skim off any fat from pan juices and pour juices into a small saucepan. Reheat gently over low heat. Carve the lamb into thin slices and serve with pan juices.

Amazingly Simple Amazingly Tasty With just five minutes' prep I had an entree fit for company. This couldn't have been easier to make and while I did roast for an additional 20 minutes beyond what is listed I probably didn't have to. Be sure you insert the garlic cloves as far as you can as they tend to pop out during roasting. Pros: Easy quick low carb can cut it with a fork Read More
