Lamb Leg (Boneless) Cooking Times and Calculator

Lamb leg is prepared by the removal of the chump using a right angle cut at the back of the hip bone. A thin layer of fat is usually left on the top of the leg to keep it moist and juicy during cooking. Roasting with the bone in allows for even cooking and adds flavour, however, it can be cooked boneless too.

Lamb Roasting Tips

  • Let the meat come up to room temperature before cooking
  • Roasting the meat at a very high temperature for 20 minutes before bringing the heat down to the temperture indicated will allow the heat to reach the centre of the joint and seal in the flavour.
  • Don't forget to rest the meat before carving. This allows the meat to relax and distributes the juices throughout. A general rule of thumb used by chefs for resting meat is 1 minute for every 100g of meat.
