Lamb is a stable meat on my carnivore diet, since it’s a ruminant animal and full of saturated fats like stearic acid, which are critical for healing ❤️🩹
While I really love seared lamb steaks and chops, slow cooked like this shredded leg of lamb are a really yummy meal that can be prepped ahead of time and enjoyed with eggs , in a carnivore noodle bowl with raw sheeps cheese or on its own with a dollop of butter 🧈
It’s easily made and so so nourishing! The awesome thing about a bone in roast is that it contains extra minerals and collagen which are released during cooking, and it’s a great way to eat nose to tail !
To make you need:
1 bone in leg of lamb roast 🐑 (mine is 3 lb)
Sea salt 🧂
Ghee for searing 🧈
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Score your roast and season with salt.
Heat up ghee in an oven safe pot and sear the roast until crispy on all sides.
Garnish with rosemary and put the lid on, transfer into the oven.
Roast for 50 mins a pound for it to be shreddable, I check occasionally and add homemade bone broth to make sure it stays moist. Once it begins to pull away from the bone, you can shred it.
If you want to crisp it up and enjoy it gyros style, you can fry it in some ghee in a skillet 😇
