"This recipe was given to me by a friend of my mother's long before this way of cooking lamb became well known. It's the only way to cook lamb for a crowd because the carving is so easy!" --Birch Hill Inn, Manchester, Vermont


  • 1 leg of lamb, 7-9 pounds (native if possible), boned and butterflied
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • Black pepper (several grinds)
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Mix together all ingredients except lamb and blend well. Marinate lamb in mixture for 6 hours (out of refrigerator), turning occasionally. Broil fat side down first, about 20 minutes each side for medium. For extra flavor cook on outdoor grill.
