Servings: 4 servings
Cook Time: 2 hours 30 min
1 small boneless lamb shoulder (about 3 pounds)
Olive oil, for searing
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup wine vinegar
2 tablespoons freshly chopped mint leaves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the lamb in a resealable plastic bag. Combine the marinade ingredients in a glass bowl or measuring cup. Pour the marinade over the lamb, seal the bag, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Once marinated, place the lamb in a cast iron pan with olive oil and sear the lamb on all sides. Cover pan with tinfoil and place in oven. Roast the lamb until done, for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. The internal temperature should reach 180 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
