Lamb Steaks with Orange, Honey and Ginger Glaze 001

Lamb is without a doubt my favourite meat … I just love the flavour. It can be expensive though so, when I saw it on special a few weeks ago, I grabbed some Lamb Leg Steaks. If you haven’t tried them you might be pleasantly surprised as they make a wonderful alternative to a traditional steak.

To cook the perfect lamb steak, lightly oil the steak (rather than the pan) and cook on a pre-heated medium to high heat in either a pan or on a grill. Turn the lamb only once, using tongs. Avoid using a fork as that will break the surface of the steak and let all the lovely juices sneak out. Cook the steak to your preference. We love our lamb a little pink on the inside, so 5 minutes on either side is usually just right. Remove the steak from the pan, cover loosely with foil and rest for a couple of minutes.

To serve these steaks I usually whip up this delicious glaze. I created this one night when I needed to come up with a quick and easy dish for a dinner party. It was a hit and I’ve cooked it ever since.

So tell me, what’s your favourite meat? Do you like lamb and, if so, what’s your favourite way to eat/cook it?

  1. I grew up on lamb because it was so much cheaper than anything else. How things have changed! We now only have lamb on special occasions. I do love my lamb pink as well. The orange and ginger glaze would pair beautifully with these steaks xx

    • I remember eating lamb all the time as a child but, unfortunately, it’s quite expensive now … it’s definitely one of my favourites though x
