For the Lamb:

  • 1 3 ½-4 lb. New Zealand grass-fed boneless lamb leg (Tip: look for the Taste Pure Nature Logo)
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

To serve:

  • Tortillas
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges


For the Lamb:

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • 2. Whisk together the oregano, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • 3. On a foil-lined sheet pan with a rack, lay out the lamb leg and season both sides generously with the spice mixture. Place in the oven.
  • 4. Cook for 2 hours and then carefully turn the lamb over and cook for a further 1 ½-2 hours. If the meat begins to brown too quickly, cover the leg tightly with foil and resume cooking.
  • 5. Once the lamb is done, remove from the oven and use two forks to shred the lamb, discarding any fatty pieces.

To Assemble & Serve:

  • 6. Serve the shredded lamb in small tortillas with salsa, guacamole, fresh cilantro and lime juice, as desired.
