Roasted lamb is definitely one of my favorite food recipes. I cook lamb as many times as I can and especially in springtime when spring lamb meat is available abundantly.
I prepare lamb in many ways including soup, schnitzel, paprikash, stew, and, of course, roast.
The slow-cooked roast is, probably, the leg of lamb recipe that I use most often. Actually, I make roasted lamb not just with a leg of lamb, but also with lamb shoulder, lamb ribs, lamb loin, and lamb neck.
Furthermore, the roast leg of lamb is never missing from the Easter table in my family. Easter is the best moment when all enjoy lamb to celebrate this magic moment in a culinary way!
Since I like refined food, I have more recipes to cook slow roast lamb. Mostly, I use recipes that feature either red wine or tomato broth and different aromatic herbs to obtain a flavored roast sunk in a savory sauce that can be combined in a perfect way with various side dishes.
Slow-cooked leg of lamb is easy to cook. Basically, you need just to marinate the bone-in or boneless leg of lamb or boneless lamb shoulder, wait a couple of hours for the meat to absorb the flavors, and roast slowly the meat in the oven at medium-low temperature to both soften and brown.
Regarding the best cuts to prepare any slow-cooked leg of lamb recipe, I consider that bone-in leg of lamb and bone-in lamb shoulder is the perfect lamb piece for a roast.
However, this is just a personal opinion based on my taste, so using boneless meat for a slow-cooked leg of lamb roast is also a good choice!
