3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add lamb. Seal and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally.

Remove lamb from marinade, discarding marinade; place lamb on food rack over drip pan.

Grill, covered with grill lid, 2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145°. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 20 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 150° (medium-rare). Garnish, if desired.
