Let the butcher do the preparation
- Ask your butcher to tie your beef roast cut if needed as some like beef fillet and beef rib eye benefit from it. Tying it gives the roast a uniform shape, which helps it cook evenly.
- When you purchase an easy carve lamb leg the butcher will have partially de-boned the lamb leg, leaving just the shank in. The butcher will also tie it, so it's compact in shape.
