Juicy, Tender Leg of Lamb

BLEND No.10 CREATIVE RECIPE

Leg of lamb is a cut of meat I seldom prepare because it can be difficult to cook so that it becomes tender. The sheath and membrane are the factors that can make this cut of meat tough. The trick is to butterfly the lamb, removing as much membrane as possible while leaving the good fat which helps keep the meat moist and tender. Using my Blend No.10 and a fresh mint sauce as a marinade and my method in the recipe are my secrets to a tender and delicious leg of lamb.
