Greek Lamb Marinade. 3 tbsp lemon juice; 1/4 cup olive oil; 2 cloves garlic, minced; 1/2 tsp thyme; 1/2 tsp oregano; 1/2 tsp bay leaf; salt and pepper to taste. Plan on marinating chops and small cuts for about 4 to 5 hours. Large cuts (double recipe) like leg of lamb should be marinated for 8 hours to overnight.
Roasted boneless leg of lamb. Used the bit for the rub/coating (pre-cooking the garlic in olive oil on low heat for about 10 minutes first, and used a food processor for the mixing to really blend it/chop it well), cooked it at 400 for 20 min per lb. instead of the 375 recommended here. Fab.
