Recipe Instructions

  1. Finding a lamb leg steak might be challenging; call your local grocery stores to see if they are in stock. Whole Foods and HEB often carry them, but other chain stores do, too. These steaks resemble a solid steak of meat with a small round bone in the center. If you can’t find any, lamb chops can be substituted.
  2. Once you have your meat, heat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a simple pan with a rack for the oven, such as the one pictured. Line the pan with tin foil for easy cleanup, and use a light dose of non-stick spray on the rack or olive oil.
  3. Place your meat on the rack, spacing evenly.
  4. Pour a small amount of pure olive oil in a dish or bowl. For cooking, pure olive oil tends to hold up better than extra virgin. The amount will depend on how much meat you have. If you are not sure, start out small. Using a grill brush, spread the olive oil over the side of the meat that is facing up, then flip it over with a fork or tongs to coat the other side.
  5. Next, sprinkle a good amount of garlic powder and rosemary all over the side of the meat facing up. We will season the other side mid-way through the cooking process when the meat is turned over.
  6. Put the meat in the over and cook for half of the time. An 8 ounce steak or 8 ounces of chops cooks to medium rare in about 25 minutes, but adjust the time to your liking and based on the thickness/weight of the steak.
  7. At the halfway point, slide the rack out, quickly turn the meat over, and then season the other side with garlic powder and rosemary. Slide the meat back into the oven and cook for the remaining time.
  8. When the time is up, cut into the meat to make sure it is done to your liking. Enjoy alone or with optional mint jelly!

        Thanks! The lamb leg steak is ideal, but lamb chops will also work as a nice substitute if you can't find the steak.
