    Default what do you do with overcooked lamb?

    Hi All,

    First off, no jokes, unless they are funny.

    Second, what can you do to make an overcooked leg of
    lamb palatable?

    :'( :'( :'(

    Many thanks,

    I would pull it off the bone and shred it, then simmer in some kind of
    sauce, treating it like, say, pulled pork. What kind of sauce would
    depend on how you seasoned it in the first place.

    Hi Alice,

    It was a boneless leg of lamb. The parts in the middle seem
    okay still.

    The seasoning was garlic, rosemary, and oregano.

    What kind of sauce would you recommend?

    Many thanks,
    -T

    That leaves out the Mexican seasonings I'd use for pulled pork, as well
    as barbecue sauce.

    If it were my lamb I were rescuing, I'd probably chop an onion and saute
    it until it's translucent, and add some vegetable broth, then mix in the
    shredded meat and cook over low heat, adding more liquid if needed.

    Hi Susan,

    Even when I soak it in the drippings, it is so
    dry it is hard to swallow. :'(

    Hi Susan,

    I answered the dry question in another post.

    Here is the rub, after all that wonderful instruction
    (a good lecture) about how to use garlic with leg
    of lamb, I stuck the cloves in whole without crushing them.
    When I removed the lamb from the pan and when to cut
    it, the garlic cloves just squirted out. Whole and
    completely in tact. AHHHHHHHH!!!

    I am going to master this is it kills me!

    Thank you for all the help!

    When I use garlic in a roast I make slivers and stick them in slits I sut
    in the meat so the garlic flavor can permeate the meat. did you pee those
    garlic cloves you use with the lamb? You must do that at least!

    One of you problems is that you are cooking with extremely limited coking
    facilities. roasts like leg of lamb do best inside ovens, nither in a
    pressure cooker or in a saute pan on a gas ring or hot plate. I think it
    might be a good idea to use foods that work well with the cooking things
    you have if you are not in a possition to get the usua kitchen equipment
    like a stove with an oven an dburners. There are counter top ovens tht
    you can get(better than just the little toaster ovens) if you can't get a
    full sized stove. then you can begin to try making some of the ambitious
    things you seem to want to try.

    Hi Wendy,

    Oh I knew better. I just forgot.

    Will look for stuff more designed for my facilities.
    You learn more from your mistakes than your successes.
    Or so I am told. :'(

    Thank you for the tips. Slivers would be easier
    than crushing it. I did peal it.

    Some cubed celery root. Traditionally we use carrots, but cooked carrots
    have too much sugary carbs. This is turning into a lamb fricassee, which is
    yummy! :-)
