LEG

Leg Steak

Leg Steak

A leg steak is obtained from the center of the leg. It is identifiable by the crosscut section of round leg bone within the meat. Grilling, broiling, and pan-frying are suitable cooking methods. Lamb is very tender meat and does not require too much cooking. Therefore it is ideal for preparing a quick dinner.

For other lamb steak options, medallions or noisettes can be cut from the loin as well.
