Ingredients:

4 pounds leg of lamb - butterflied
2 teaspoons salt
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 cup olive oil
2 medium lemons -- juiced
1/3 cup tomato paste
2 teaspoons rosemary
1/2 teaspoon black pepper - ground coarse
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon savory
 

Preparation / Directions:

Have the butcher butterfly the leg of lamb, or do it yourself. Combine all remaining ingredients in a glass, enamel, stainless, or plastic container and beat with a whisk or fork until combined. It takes a few minutes. Add the lamb, turning it to make sure it is coated on all sides. Marinate two hours at room temperature, or overnight in the refrigerator. Check occasionally to make sure that it is still coated with the marinade and re-cover as necessary. Grill outside, or grill inside at about 8 inches from the flame for 15 minutes on each side, brushing occasionally with the marinade. Serve sliced thin (hot) with the rest of the marinade, heated. NOTES: Leg of Lamb with Rosemary and Tomato Baste -- My wife and I have used this recipe a number of times, and have found that the marinade, in and of itself, is excellent for any type of lamb. This also makes wonderful sandwiches if there are any leftovers.
