This application utilizes a sous vide processed leg of lamb that has been cold shocked after processing and/or after the initial service. The result is a tender, perfectly cooked protein with a totally natural, unadulterated flavor. Additional slides at the bottom of the page outline the basic procedure for processing the lamb.
