Instant Pot Leg of Lamb!

Instant Pot Leg of Lamb

Once we have discovered this  Australian Lamb Leg Roast while shopping at Costco it’s been a game-changer for my family! Costco’s price on Lamb is hard to beat. 

I knew I should have no problem fixing it since cooking lamb is easy! In a bit more than an hour, we had this INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS meat! I would have added mushrooms and onions, but my son would complain. I did add on the side along with Instant Pot buckwheat that goes so well with lamb! Try it!

As you might remember I have decided to make Lamb Steaks and Instant Pot Lamb roast with my 6-pound roast. If you decide to pressure cook the whole roast it will take a bit longer – 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size, but the same instructions. 



As you can see Costco has the best price per pound on Premium Australian Lamb!

These are the ingredients that I use for an incredible flavor! Sometimes I use Paprika and McCormick’s Grill Mates Mesquite seasoning (adds a bit of smoked flavor)

How to cook Instant Pot Leg of Lamb

Pat dry lamb, rub with Olive oil, season and add chopped Garlic in open cavities.

Get Instant Pot ready.

Select “Sauté” mode, when Hot, brown lamb on all sides.

Select “Cancel”.

Add 2 Cups Chicken Broth (or any broth you have on hand) and bay leaves (about 2).

Select “Meat/Stew” and enter 60 minutes, again depending on the size of your lamb. This one was a big boy, 5+ pounds. You can pressure cook 40 minutes for a smaller size lamb. 

Let the Instant Pot come down with a natural pressure release.

Should I remove the netting?

Make sure to remove the outer plastic wrapping paper of the lamb. Be careful not to cut the netting that holds the de-boned leg of lamb together. You can safely saute and roast with the netting and remove it before slicing and serving. 

Important Tip

Actually, the Lamb gets more even tender and flavorful in the next few days. I keep sliced lamb in the leftover sauce/gravy from the roast and it absorbs all the moisture and seasoning. 

If you plan to make it for the holidays, you can make it a day or two in advance and have it ready. Just make a few sides and you are done! Easy! 

I have served it for my in-laws 56th Wedding Anniversary dinner! SO GOOD!

    What a lot for a 2.5 lb lamb leg? Just cut everything in half (ingredients, cook time, etc)? Thanks!

    I have a 9 lb leg of lamb! How long do I cook it?

      Renee, I have never seen such a huge Leg of lamb. It might be difficult to fit and rotate such a large piece of meat in the pressure cooker. I would estimate 90 minutes then the natural release should work well.
