When I was shopping on Saturday I found they had dropped the price of a bunch of lamb shoulder steaks by 40% b/c they were a day from expiration. Any time you have some lamb about to expire, I’ll take it. I grew up eating lamb b/c we raised them but I’m too stingy to pay the usual $4-8/lb for the stuff . . . but 40% off, I’ll snatch it up! 😉
I tossed the steaks in a bag with some lemon juice and a little olive oil. Next, I rubbed it with garlic and added sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, and oregano. After cooking the leftover rice all week, we were ready for the break Sunday night. I grilled the lamb steaks, roasted some spuds, nuked some veggies, and sliced some honeydew for dessert. Summer is almost here and I’m ready for grilling season.
We bought a new grill at the end of the season last year and I love it. I’ve even used it in the middle of winter. It has a thermometer on the lid so once it read 400 F, I added the lamb. I love the sound of meat searing on the grill. I turned them after a few minutes ~maybe 5 minutes? and let them cook another 5-6 minutes. I don’t like my lamb to bleat as it walks up to my plate and lays down; I like it medium well to well done. If you like yours less well done, it would only take a couple of minutes per side.
Mmm, tasty. I think Thing 1 ate 2 steaks and everyone but Thing 4 liked it. I have a couple of steaks leftover and I’m thinking I’ll try to find some naan or other flatbread and slice the lamb and mix with some other stuff, maybe even some rice, to have with a little yogurt sauce.
