  • 2 lbs lamb leg, boneless and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, crushed
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


1. Preparing the Lamb

Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). Rub the lamb leg with olive oil, salt, and black pepper, ensuring all sides are well coated. Place the lamb in a roasting pan and roast for approximately 30 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare. Remove the lamb from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

2. Mint Pistachio Cream

In a small mixing bowl, combine the fresh mint leaves, crushed pistachios, Greek yogurt, and minced garlic. Stir well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. This creamy and aromatic mixture will add a delightful freshness to your lamb dish.

3. Serving

Once the lamb has rested, thinly slice it and arrange the slices on a serving platter. Drizzle the mint pistachio cream over the lamb, or you can serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. Garnish with additional fresh mint leaves and crushed pistachios for an elegant presentation.
