A nice recipe of grilled lamb leg chops or leg of lamb steaks

The vinaigrette taste when u put on top the grilled lamb leg chops really makes the meat fresh, nice and tasty.


4 lamb steaks (cut from the leg, about 1 1/2 inch thick)
2 tbsp plain yogurt
1 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
salt to taste

For the vinaigrette:
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


In a large baking dish, combine the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, cumin, pepper, tarragon, mint, and rosemary. Mix well and add the lamb steaks, tossing to coat. Once evenly coated, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Lamb steaks may be marinated over night.

Add the vinaigrette ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine; reserve

Preheat your grill, or grill pan. Remove steaks from marinade, scrap off the garlic and herbs, lightly oil and salt both sides generously. Grill about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare (will vary depending on thickness). Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with the minted honey vinaigrette spooned over the top.
