Shopping for a showstopper? This cut of American lamb, brought to you by Niman Ranch, is the ideal choice if you plan to serve a crowd this holiday season. We guarantee it will captivate the attention of every guest seated at your dining table!
Why we love this cut: First off, leg of lamb is lean yet extremely tender. And the meat has a mild, buttery flavor (we promise: not a hint of gameyness!). The leg’s shank bone is left intact to serve as a handle to grasp when carving, but is otherwise boneless for ease of slicing and to comfortably fit in a roasting pan. Lastly, the leg is hand-tied in butcher net to preserve shape while cooking.
For best results, oven roast the leg, slice and serve with roasted root vegetables or sandwich between slices of thick, toasted whole-grain bread.
All Niman Ranch young lamb is raised by independent U.S. family ranchers committed to sustainable and humane practices.
