Marinated Roast Lamb Rump

We eat lamb often, especially in the spring and summertime. Although it’s nice with a whole leg of lamb when the family is here, if my husband and I are home alone I like to make a lamb rump roast for the two of us. Just the perfect size for two and always super tender and juicy from the marinade. Serve this with Tzatziki and a Greek Salad for a perfect meal that is both low-carb and delicious.
