How to butterfly a leg of lamb

How to butterfly a leg of lamb

Current rating: 4 from 2 votes.

The trick is finding the right seam to split the muscles and the meat from the bone.

Household tip type: In the Kitchen

 

  • Step 1
    Using a very sharp boning knife, cut along the seam that runs alongside the bone. Open out the meat along the seam 
to expose the bone.

 

  • Step 2
    Start working around the bone, cutting as close to it as possible to lose the minimum amount of quality meat.

 

  • Step 3
    Tilting the knife away from you, under the bone, cut carefully through the meat to remove the bone. 

 

  • Step 4
    Open the meat out and continue cutting along the seams 
to open the leg out completely.

 

  • Note: If the idea of deboning a leg of lamb seems a bit much, ask your PnP butchery manager to do it for you. This service is available to all PnP shoppers.
