  • 2.5 lb boneless leg of lamb (I cut a big Costco lamb leg in half)


  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 3/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced



2. Combine marinade ingredients. Marinate lamb for 4-5 hours in a 9x13 baking dish, turning once.

3. Turn grill to medium high. Remove lamb, reserving marinade, and cook, 8 minutes for the first side, 6 minutes second side, to sear, basting every few minutes. Turn off one burner (or move over half your coals) and put lamb on the cool side of the grill to cook indirectly. Cook until thermometer in the largest area registers 135-140 degrees for rare in the largest portion, approx 25 minutes, while continuing to baste. Remove from heat and serve with israeli couscous spiced with coriander and baby turnips.

Glorious lamb.... mmmmmmmm....
