Each year our church friends host a traditional Messianic Passover Meal at their home. We go through the entire Passover ritual and we enjoy a wonderful meal together. It is a cherished tradition my hubs and I look forward to. We don’t get to go every year but this Saturday evening we will be going to the home of Greg & Karen and the meal will feature a lovely, delicious roasted leg of lamb from the kitchen of Lew and Alice! They have shared the recipe and instructions on how to make a perfect…Roasted Leg of Lamb and the image below is Lew’s dad’s original recipe card, at least 35 years old!
Lew’s Roast Leg of Lamb
- Thaw the roast the day before preparing.
- On the day of preparing, remove roast from ‘frig to reach “room temperature.”
- a 5-7 pound Domestic leg of lamb (have butcher remove the gland when buying) not sure if this pertains to a roast purchased at a grocery store?
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- juice of one lemon
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- Hot pepper sauce – several shakes, dashes, squirts – whatever you call that action!

- Place roast in preheated 350 degree oven and roast 30 minutes per pound.

My husband is Jewish, so I know the Passover meal well. It is such a sacred meal that I’ve enjoyed for close to 20 years with his family. My church does one from a Christian perspective which I LOVE too!
So cool. Enjoy!
