When you’re wanting the flavors of a Greek style leg of lamb and potatoes but don’t have 5 hours to slow roast one, turn to a quicker cooking cut like lamb chops! I get either the lamb loin or rack of lamb chops as those are the most tender and have tons of flavor – two to three per person should do the trick. Season them with garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano and a drizzle of olive oil. Place them in a roasting pan with cut up potatoes which have been seasoned in the same fashion. You’ll also want to throw a few garlic cloves in, some diced up tomato (seeds removed) and chicken broth. Sprinkle the juice from about 1 lemon overtop.
Roast in the oven about 15-20 minutes to a nice medium doneness. Remove the meat to rest and let the potatoes finish cooking through. My weeknight hack to roasted leg of lamb Greek style is ready to be served 🙂 enjoy!
