  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 large clove garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 (4 pound) leg of lamb, butterflied

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  2. 2 In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the limeade concentrate, white wine, garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook, stirring, until the butter is melted. Remove from heat.
  3. 3 Place leg of lamb onto the preheated grill, and cook basting frequently for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the internal temperature has reached at least 145 degrees F (62 degrees C).

  1. This recipe was easy and delicious.
  2. I made this in my crock pot instead of on the grill - same ingredients for the glaze just pour it over the meat then occasionally spooned over the meat as it cooks. Fantastic!
  3. HUGE hit! I made this for Mother's Day and the platter was literally wiped clean. I prefer lamb on the rare side but for those that didn't I just zapped their serving in the microwave and everybody was happy. We will definitly have this again. I think I will try the glaze on lamb chops - Read more ...
  4. Were I am lamb is so expensive that this recipe does not rate a repeat. It was okay if you have lamb and are trying to find ways of cooking it. I had a "roast" that I cut in half to cook. Took well over the alloted time. Ended up putting this in the microwave - Read more ...
  5. Wonderful flavor. I made this in the oven instead. It was a success with my husband. I will make this again and I have shared it with my Mom.
  6. This was very good. I did add some rosemary but all in all followed the directions. I'm looking forward to trying it on other meats.
  7. This recipe is a "must-have" in any cook's repertoire! It is fast easy and my guests were thrilled with the results.
