The holidays are the perfect time to break out the more luxurious cuts of meat, like big roasts with tons of gravy. We love our seasonal star, the boneless leg of lamb, roasted to perfection by Chef Yankel. Piled with fresh herbs and Middle-Eastern influenced spices, this roast lamb sets itself apart. Enjoy it alongside a glass of deep red wine and maybe some buttery roasted potatoes.

Ingredients (19):

  • Rub
  • 1 ButcherBox Boneless Lamb Leg
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

  • 2 onions, roughly chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 cups beef stock

Directions:

  1. Mix all rub ingredients to form a paste. Spread rub mixture evenly over roast, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Discard plastic wrap and season roast with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Bring to room temperature, about 40 min.
  3. Mix carrots, onions, garlic and fresh rosemary sprigs and place on sheet pan.

  5. Heat beef stock in large saucepan. Rest lamb roast and rosemary sprigs on wire rack.
  6. Place roasted veggies into saucepan with beef stock, and simmer for 2 min.
  7. Remove saucepan from heat and puree with immersion blender. If using food processor, let stock cool for ten minutes first.
