Ask your butcher to trim the lamb if you prefer--most supermarket butchers are glad to be of assistance.


  • 4-5 pound boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and separated into 4 muscles
  • 2 large lemons, juiced
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, rough chopped
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh rosemary, rough chopped
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, coarse-ground
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper, as needed


  • 1 Remove lamb from netting; using a sharp paring knife, cut between the muscles to separate boneless leg of lamb into 4 large pieces. Trim excess fat; butterfly larger pieces of meat so all pieces have a somewhat uniform thickness.
  • 2 In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, rosemary, black pepper and balsamic vinegar. Combine lamb pieces and marinade in a shallow baking dish or large sealable plastic bags. Marinate a minimum of 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 3 Bring lamb to room temperature before grilling. Drain marinade and discard. Season lamb with salt and black pepper.
  • 4 Heat grill to medium high heat. Grill lamb, turning occasionally, until thermometer registers 125 to 130 degrees, or to desired doneness (times may vary depending on size of the pieces).
  • 5 Remove from heat; let lamb rest loosely covered for 15 minutes.
  • 6 Slice thinly across the grain for serving.
