Ingredients:

  • 1 leg of American lamb (boneless)
  • kosher salt
  • freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Vino Cotto di Montillo

Directions:

  • Remove lamb from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to roasting. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C).
  • Rinse lamb well under cold water. (NOTE: If the lamb comes in a sack made of string, do not remove it. Leave the sack on and remove only when done roasting.)
  • Add extra virgin olive oil to a skillet. Over the skillet, generously season all surfaces of the lamb with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place the lamb in the skillet and sear all sides over medium-high heat to brown the surface. Remove from heat.
  • Transfer the lamb to the prepared roasting pan, cover and roast.
    • Rare: 125°F (about 15 minutes per pound)
    • Medium-Rare: 130°F to 135°F (about 20 minutes per pound)
    • Medium: 135°F to 140°F (about 25 minutes per pound)
    • Well-Done: 155°F to 165°F (about 30 minutes per pound)
  • Using a meat thermometer, remove from the oven when the internal temperature reaches the desired wellness.
  • Remove from the oven and let the roast sit for about 15 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook during the resting period.
  • A few minutes before serving the lamb, add vino cotto to a small sauce pan. Over low heat, bring to a gentle boil. Remove from heat and transfer to a gravy boat.
  • To serve, slice the lamb and drizzle heated vino cotto over it.
