Braised Leg of Lamb with Graukäse Polenta

Cooked in a fragrant rosemary–juniper lamb stock, the tender braised meat is then presented over a mound of hearty polenta, enriched with Gruyère-like cheese.Tom Parker

Chef Norbert Niederkofler of St. Hubertus in Badia, Italy, braises his leg of lamb for hours and finishes it over a grill. To simplify the process, we put our braised leg under the broiler. The accompanying polenta is flavored with Graukäse, a pungent local cheese. Substitute other strong-flavored Alpine cheeses like raclette or Gruyère in its place.
