➡️ Cooking tips for the Moroccan leg of lamb roast recipe 🔎

Roasted lamb is a common dish in some countries, while in other parts of the world belongs to the most refined gourmet food recipes.

In western cultures, the most often used part of lamb to cook lamb is the leg. I like, however, preparing roasted lamb with any lamb cut so, usually, I butcher half a lamb carcass and cook it slowly on the tray with different flavors.

On this page, I show you how to cook a leg of lamb roast with a Moroccan-style marinade. The main aromas of the marinade are cumin, lemon juice, and lovage or rosemary, which are typical for Moroccan cuisine.

I’ve added to the recipe a large quantity of garlic because I like very much the roasted lamb with a strong garlic aroma. However, you can use less garlic, just to give a delicate plus flavor to the roast.

Cooking a Moroccan leg of lamb roast is very easy, so there aren’t cooking tips to share regarding this recipe. I recommend keeping the fresh meat with marinade in the fridge before roasting because the spices will enter inside much better and you’ll notice a significantly different taste of the roast.

Also, I recommend cooking the lamb slowly, at a low temperature, to soften the meat before roasting. Use a high temperature just in the final part to brown the roast.

You can serve the roasted leg of lamb with different side dishes. Boiled rice is also typical for Moroccan cuisine, so you could try it to enjoy a meal just like in this North African country. Of course, other side dishes match very well this lamb roast in the oven such as mashed potatoes and French fries.
