Lamb - Shoulder Roast

Shoulder Roast is sizeable portion of meat, which is usually sold deboned and rolled. The meat from this cut contains a good amount of intramuscular fat, which gives it a nice juicy flavor. Compared to roasts from the Leg, Shoulder Roast can be a tad tough since a Lamb uses its front legs more actively than the hindquarters.
