Help with reheating a bone in leg of lamb

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi we roasted off a lovely bone in leg of lamb yesterday. Unfortunately we never got to eat it. A friend needed our help so we had to leave just as the lamb was resting. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reheat it without drying it out? Thanks!

My advice: don't reheat. Eat it cold, it's delicious. Reheated, the issue isn't so much the drying out as the significant change in flavor profile.

Whenever my family would reheat roasts, they would put a rack in a roasting pan. They would then put the roast on it and fill up the bottom with broth until it touches the bottom of the roast, cover and heat in a not-so-hot oven until warmed through.

I agree with FF - the flavor change is noticeable, but that's not to say reheating it won't taste good.  I mean how would you know if you never got to try it in the first place?  If it was just leftovers I'd say Greek sandwiches like gyro, but a moist reheat to warm then flash the crust might get you there.  If you're not going to eat it all I wouldn't heat it to the bone - save that for another meal.

Reheat it sliced and only heat what you will eat..

Heat it in hot gravy and do not bring it to a boil after you added the meat to the heated gravy or it will get tough.

I know I'll get slammed for this, but I reheat slices of meat in the microwave.  Unless I leave it in there too long it always comes out juicy and good.
