De-boned slices of roasted lamb shank.
   
Jambe d’Agneau -  A foreleg leg of lamb.  Also a cut from the leg, a cut across the bone.  Cuts across the leg, with the bone left in, may come from the front or rear legs. Larger cuts will be treated like lamb steaks or chops, and the smaller cuts; cuts from lower down the leg may be on the menu as another cut completely.  These cuts may also be made as an Osso Buco d'Agneau, a lamb Osso Buco.  While Osso Buco is traditionally made with veal, lamb does qualify even in Italy. (For the link to Osso Buco click here).

Ragoût de Jambe d'Agneau –  A ragoût d'Agneau,  a lamb stew. Usually, a hearty stew cooked with turnips, and or Swedes, carrots, beans, onions, carrots, and whatever else the chef decides to add. In a stew like this if the cut from the leg and includes, the bone it will improve the gravy, which will be enriched with red wine and herbs.  If you, like me, are interested in what goes in the pot, it may be worthwhile asking for more information.
