This is the first time I tried leg steaks. I found them to be a delicious and very tender cut of lamb. This is how I was told to prepare them by my mother. Mmmmm very good.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place lamb steaks in a single layer in a shallow dish. Cover with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Flip steaks to coat both sides. Let sit until steaks absorb flavors, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Cook steaks until browned on the outside and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side for medium. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

It doesn't get any easier than this! Sometimes less is more and this recipe is a perfect example of that. While I'm not a huge fan of rosemary, it pairs nicely with lamb and is quite good in this. The only change I made is that I let it marinate for an hour just to make sure everything got acquainted. Excellent recipe! Read More

The flavor and texture were a little disappointing. I will probably make it again but marinate in the olive oil mixture for at least two hours if not overnight. The 30 minute marinate the recipe calls for just didn't cut it. Read More

I scaled the recipe down to 1 serving as my lamb steak was close to a pound. Marinated in a zip-top plastic bag for 1 hour and cooked it stove-top. Took out of fridge for close to an hour to bring to room temp. In hot frying pan using high heat, seared for 2 min per side. Then 3-4 min per side on lower heat, to reach 145degF. The pieces of garlic started burning and I was removing while steak cooked. Maybe garlic powder would be better cooking this way. Removed steak fromheat and topped with a few pats of butter which helped to make a sauce. Let rest for about 10 min. Had with Fried Broccoli from this site. Thanks Nichole....nice recipe! Read More

Very tasty and easy! I did change it a little as I used Roasted Garlic Powder instead of the minced garlic. Definitely a keeper. Read More
