  • 1 5-6 pound boneless leg of lamb, rolled and tied (your butcher can do this for you)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 12 ounce bottle of beer
  • sea salt & smoked black pepper


Mixed together the rosemary, garlic, mustard, paprika, and olive oil. Lightly oil the bottom of a roasting pan and place the lamb.
Pour the beer over the lamb, then rub the mustard mixture on the top and sides of the lamb. Marinate at least 1 hour at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Season lamb with sea salt & smoked black pepper and cover the pan with foil.
Roast lamb in the oven for about 1.5 hours, or until the inside temperature reaches 135-140 for medium rare, basting along the way by spooning the beer over the lamb every half hour. Let the lamb rest at least 10 minutes before carving.
