Summer Lamb Kabobs

Rating: 4.5 stars 43
This is an awesome treat for the grill. We raise grass-fed lambs that are weaned naturally. Experimenting with lamb recipes over the past 15 years has become a hobby. Lamb and garlic go so well together. In this recipe, the combination of herbs and spices complement this meat and make a great family-and-friend favorite.

If you have never prepared lamb burgers, I highly recommend you try this recipe. Serve on hamburger buns with lots of mango chutney and cream cheese. Also good with lettuce, tomato and red onion.

Grilled Lamb Loin Chops

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
Don't let their small size fool you, these chops are packed with maximum flavor! Try and find loin chops that are at least 1-inch thick for best results. These are best served medium to medium-rare, but add a few extra minutes per side if you prefer them a little more done.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Lamb Burgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 67
I love making these flavorful lamb burgers stuffed with creamy, delicious goat cheese. I use basil and oregano in mine, but feel free to use your favorite herbs and spices, this recipe is very forgiving. Using fresh rosemary in the goat cheese filling will give the burgers a real Greek flavor. Serve the burgers on hamburger buns or pita bread with tzatziki sauce, or on their own with a Greek salad.

Korean Barbecued Rack of Lamb

Rating: 5 stars 14
Lamb's subtly sweet gaminess works perfectly with the funky goodness of gochujang chile paste. The salt and sugar content of the simple Korean marinade acts as a brine for the lamb, producing a juicy interior when soaked overnight. In the final stage, the marinade is reduced, doubling as a sauce. I love using rack for this, since it's more tender and easier to work with than leg and a little more user-friendly than chops.

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.

Lamb Burgers

I bought a selection of lamb cuts from a CSA and got several one-pound packages of ground lamb. I made the last one tonight, and it was the best of all. Top them with Dijon mayo, tomato slices, and baby greens.

Kofta Kebabs
Rating: 4.5 stars 413

These kebabs have 6 different kinds of spices; the first time I smelled them I knew immediately that I had to find the recipe. The most affordable way to purchase the spices is in bulk at either a health food store or an Asian or Middle-Eastern market. They are very good! Serve with yogurt, flat bread, lettuce, tomato and cucumber.
