I got boneless lamb shoulder in my meat CSA this month. It's tied with twine. I was thinking of following a recipe for braised lamb shoulder, that calls for trimming the fat. This cut of lamb has a pretty significant layer of fat underneath the twine. Should I untie it to trim the fat? What is the tying for anyway?
