You must be kidding..."lamby" flavor? If you don't like the taste of lamb, then this might not be the recipes for you! Either that, or perhaps you didn't cook it long enough to your liking? Rare lamb has a different flavor and texture than medium to well cooked lamb has.
Very good and very simple. I also inserted slivers of garlic into the meat and turned the oven down to 400 after 15 minutes.
This is a great roast. Sometimes I add a paste of dijon mustard mixed w/ the rosemary and garlic. I don't understand the review of 3 stars because it 'had a very lamby flavor' I'ts lamb! If 'you're not a fan of lamb' then make a beef roast or tenderloin or something else.
Was a pretty easy and good introduction to lamb. Rosemary and garlic were good but the lamb still had a very "lamby" flavor, which is good if you like lamb but I would not recommend this is you aren't a fan of lamb. Leftovers were great with a homemade tzatziki sauce.
