Carving a Leg of Lamb
A leg of lamb is one of simplest roasts to carve. There are no complicated techniques involved and all that is required is a sharp knife and a means to steady the roast as it is being carved.
When cooking lamb, the proper lamb cooking time and the correct cooking temperature are extremely important. The optimum flavor and tenderness of various cuts of lamb can be consistently achieved when care is taken to follow the guidelines for the recommended lamb cooking times and cooking temperatures.
Braising | Stewing
Braising and stewing involve the slow cooking of meat in a liquid. This technique tenderizes and softens firm or tough cuts and allows for rich and subtle blending of the meat flavors with those of the liquid and seasonings.
Sautéing | Pan-Frying
Sautéing is the technique of cooking thin cuts of lamb in a small quantity of hot fat in an uncovered pan. This is considered a 'dry heat' method because fat does not contain water.
