Mom has one bone-in, one boneless and wants to cook both for tomorrow. I doubt the wisdom of cooking both in same oven simultaneously. Fun but reasonable suggestions? Bone-in is 5lbs, boneless is 4 lbs. Open pit not an option ;)
It can be done if the oven can accomodate both roasts, the boneless would require less cooking time so would need to be removed before the bone in. Depending on the level of doneness you would need anywhere from 15=30 minutes per pound (medium rare to well done) A meat thermometer would help if you have one. Happy Easter!
Thanks Chef Ono, you are so right, I should have said to put the bone in first so they are both done at the same time. I totally agree about well done, I just included it just in case they like their meat that way. I personally don't and say yes spare the little lamb from over cooking.
Thank you both! Wow - thirty minutes a pound! The only thing I've cooked that long was my brain during my PhD comps. Ha! No, the lamb will not be subjected to that ferocity. And I will put the bone-in in first. We'll raise a glass to you tomorrow!
