Ilg's Disappointment - Crown Roast of Lamb

Kater | Dec 26, 2012 08:08 PM

I have been a strong Ilg's evangelist for many years but I am really unhappy with my Christmas crown roasts of lamb. They were astonishingly fatty. It was like there was a huge piece of fat on the inside of the crown that should have been removed. Luckily I had also purchased a tenderloin because no one would touch it. I wound up wasting over $200 on something that none of my guests would eat.

Have you ever had a problem like this? Do you know of another butcher who does a proper crown roast of lamb?
