Greek Style Grilled Leg of Lamb

Written by in , Comments Off on Greek Style Grilled Leg of Lamb

Lamb is a popular meat in Greece and throughout the Greek diaspora. Grilling a leg of lamb in this way is incredibly popular, especially on Easter if it isn’t possible to cook a whole lamb.

Grilled Style Leg of Lamb Recipe:

  • 1 bone-in leg of lamb, fat trimmed
  • Greek olive oil, for brushing
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 recipe ladolemono

Instructions to Make Greek Grilled Leg of Lamb:

Preheat the grill to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or prepare the coals if using a charcoal grill.

Brush the leg of lamb with olive oil and then rub with salt and pepper. Let it stand for about fifteen minutes.

Place the leg of lamb on the grill and brush the top with ladolemono. Let it grill for about ten minutes and then turn the leg over. Brush that top with ladolemono.

Cover the grill but remove the cover every 15 minutes to rotate the leg. Continue to brush with ladolemono every time you turn it until it is all used up.

Cook the lamb as long as it needs to be cooked for it to be cooked how you want it. Use a meat thermometer. The temperature should read 160 degrees Fahrenheit for medium and 170 degrees Fahrenheit for well done.
