Beef and lamb contribute to a feeling of vitality being good sources of energy-producing iron and B vitamins.
  • Ask your butcher to bone and butterfly the leg of lamb for you.
  • Always rest meat after cooking. This gives the juices in the meat a chance to redistribute, giving a moist and more tender result. Transfer the meat to a plate and loosely cover with foil, stand the meat to rest in a warm place.
  • Enjoy nutritious beef and lamb 3-4 times per week with plenty of vegetables and an overall healthy lifestyle.

20 minutes each side is far too long. Suggest 10-15 minutes each side.
