Celebrate the holidays, a special occasion or anytime with a succulent boneless leg of lamb roast for a truly impressive feast. Lamb is a well-marbled, lean, and robust meat that will have your guests raving and begging for more.


This recipe for herb rubbed boneless leg of lamb roast with white wine reduction features our 3.5 pound New Zealand Boneless Leg of Lamb. New Zealand lamb has a meaty, complex-yet-familiar flavor that is the hallmark of a perfect lamb.


Each boneless leg of lamb is reared in the rolling grasslands of New Zealand, where it’s humanely pasture-raised and sustained on eco-friendly native grasses, like rye, clover, and alfalfa. This ensures you get a well-marbled portion of lamb that’s remarkably lean and succulent with a subtle earthly flavor and tender texture.


Boneless leg of lamb is easy to prepare with just a few simple fresh herbs for seasoning. The lamb roast can be cooked to your desired doneness – rare to medium – with the instructions below.  Prepare a white wine reduction and drizzle over the lamb slices for a rich and tender lamb dinner.  Serve a celebratory feast that will delight your guests.
