Charlene Ealy submitted a delicious recipe utilizing Lamb Roast ~ Mediterranean Lamb Roast. Thank you Charlene for the fabulous recipe!
Leg of Lamb or Lamb Shoulder are both great options for cooking with. However, Lamb Shoulder is a succulent, inexpensive and forgiving cut of lamb. Lamb shoulder shines in a slow, moist braise, which melts the fat and softens the connective tissue. After as little as 90 minutes, it will be fork tender, with the concentrated flavor that comes from cooking in a closed pot.
