How to carve boneless roasts

Boneless roasts, like rolled pork tenderloin, boned and tied leg of lamb, and beef are easy to carve.

1. Hold the roast steady with a long-handled meat fork.

2. With the knife held perpendicular to the cutting board, cut across the grain into thin uniform slices. Cut the slices between 1/4- and 1/2-inch thick.

If you are carving thinner cuts of meat, like beef brisket, slice the meat diagonally across the grain. This will give you a slice of meat with a larger surface area.
