Author: Lynette ~ TheGrain-FreeKitchen.com


  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs 100% grass fed leg of lamb , small enough to fit into Instant Pot
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper, add more to suit your liking
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, or your choice of fat
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 1 cup homemade broth
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder, optional for thickening gravy
  • 1/4 cup cold water, optional for thickening gravy


  • Cut slits into the leg of lamb and tuck the garlic slices in them.
  • Season leg of lamb with fine sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
  • Press the "Saute" button on the Instant Pot. When hot, add 1 tbsp of the oil and saute the onions until nicely browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove onions from pot. Add remaining 1 tbsp of oil and sear the leg of lamb for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Add back in the onions and add in thyme, bone broth, and orange juice.
  • Lock the lid, ensure the float valve on the lid is in the "sealing" position. Press "Keep Warm/Cancel" button once (to cancel the saute function). 
  • Press the "Meat/Stew" button and adjust the timer for 40 minutes using either the "+" or "-" buttons.
  • When finished, allow to naturally vent, which will take about 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can also quick vent by carefully turning the float to "venting".
  •  If thickening the sauce, make a slurry by combining the arrowroot powder and water in a cup and mix until powder is dissolved. Remove the leg of lamb from the pot and stir in the slurry. 
  • Carve the meat into servings and serve along side the sauce or gravy. Accompany with the Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Carrots recipe.
