A Butcher Butchered My Plan for Lamb

Thursday, October 13, 2011


I wanted to make lamb this weekend, and I did. I made a leg of lamb, which would have turned out quite lovely if I hadn't overcooked it.

Overcooking would NOT have been a problem with my original lamb plan: a tagine, or Moroccan lamb stew, recipe courtesy of the now-defunct and much-missed Gourmet Magazine. But I had to change that plan after the butcher talked me out of the cut of meat I wanted.
