Equipment

  • Grill or Stovetop Grill
  • Measuring Cups
  • small mixing bowl
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • tongs

Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 4 oz lamb steak
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 10 stocks asparagus and other vegetables if desired
  • 1/2 whole lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or marjoram

Instructions

  • Start by marinating your 4 oz lamb steak in 1 T plain yogurt for 15 minutes to two hours before grilling. The acidity of the yogurt quickly tenderizes the meat, and adds another layer of flavor.
  • After the lamb has rested, remove excess yogurt before grilling so it doesn't burn. Uuse a clean paper towel to blot the yogurt off. Then season with 1 tsp lemon pepper & place on a hot grill.
  • Add 10 stocks fresh asparagus to the grill right away. They'll take about the same amount of time to cook.
  • Grill the lamb for 5 minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. Your steak will come off the grill easily once it's cooked enough.
  • Remove once it's done. You can check with a meat thermometer. The meat should be 145+ degrees in the middle. 170 degrees is well done, so I usually like my steaks between 145-160 degrees for a nice medium-rare.
  • Make sure to let it stand for 10 minutes before eating. This will seal in the juices, so you'll get a tender and juicy steak instead of a juicy plate.

Notes

  • It's hard to get exactly 4 oz of meat, adjust seasonings depending on how many oz your steak is.
  • You can also use lamb chops in this recipe
  • Use whatever veggies you have. Carrots, eggplant, zucchini, green beans, and onions are great on the grill.
