tips and tricks

  1. Do not skip the rest time before cutting the meat so that the juices are distributed evenly. If you don’t let it rest, the lamb will dry out with all of its juicy flavor draining onto your cutting board.
  2. To carve the lamb, hold the rib ends and tilt the rack to a 45 degree angle. Place a sharp carving his knife between the ribs, leaving an even amount of meat on each side of the bone.

Pro tip: Lamb meat has its mildest flavor when it is four to six months old. However, some lamb may be a little older and have a rancid smell. Great if you like it that way. If you want to reduce its flavor, remove as much fat as possible, marinate in brine (or in buttermilk) for 30 minutes to an hour, and marinate overnight.
