How To Sous Vide Lamb Saratoga Roast

Saratoga Roast is a tender cut of lamb, mostly comprised of protein and fat. As a result, saratoga roast is best cooked by bringing it up to your desired temperature, but not letting it cook for an extended period of time.

Traditionally, cooking techniques like grilling or sauteing are used to cook tender cuts of lamb, like saratoga roast. This allows saratoga roast to be cooked to the full range of temperatures, from rare to well done. Sous vide's primary benefit for this type of cut is that it can produce edge-to-edge consistency of doneness. If you like your saratoga roast medium, you don't need to have a range of doneness from medium well at the edges to medium in the center.

Our advice with Saratoga Roast is to cook it at a temperature you like and not to exceed a couple of hours (depending on the thickness of the cut). The goal is to bring the lamb up to the temperature you want.
