I've just come back from a restaurant where I ordered a Lamb Steak, medium-rare, as my main course. However, it was very chewy and elastic. Even the steak knife needed some extra force to cut the meat. After I complaint to my waiter, the owner of the restaurant approached me and told me that Lamb Steaks are always chewy, regardless of how they are cooked. Especially that this steak comes directly from the leg. I just couldn't process the fact that there are people out there that can eat this kind of steak and enjoy it, I mean seriously, my jaws began to hurt. So here I am, asking this question. Is it true what he said? Are Lamb Steaks always chewy? Or is there a correct way to cook them nice and tender?
