Confession: The first time I ate lamb was a couple years ago. The reason it took me so long to try it was because whenever I would hear the word "lamb" whether it be "Grilled Lamb with Yukon Gold Potatoes" or "Lamb Kabobs" I couldn't help but picture the adorable, fuzzy faces of one of those little guys. Then I realized that I don't get a mental image of a cow whenever I eat a hamburger, so why do I do that with lamb or veal? Lucky for me that I got over it because they are delicious!
Here is a simple recipe for grilled lamb. It's good as it is and even better as a sandwich. Please note that I didn't take exact measurement of the spices I used. I sprinkled on enough spice to cover the steak evenly. That's just how it is when I cook. Here's what I used: Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and oregano.
Heat up a few tablespoons of olive oil in a grill pan (medium high heat). Place you lamb steak in the pan and cook for 2 minutes (for a one inch thick steak).
Flip and cook for 2 minutes on the other side.
Take the steak out of the pan and wrap it in foil to rest for 10 minutes.
While the steak is resting, get your vegetables ready.
Slice a couple tomatoes
And some onions.
Slice and toast some French bread.
Meanwhile, check on the steak. It should be nice and relaxed.
And ready for slicing.
Spread some flavored cream cheese (I used onion and chive) onto the bread.
Add some baby spinach.
Add the sliced onions...
and the tomatoes.
And finally the steak. Top it off with the other half of the French bread and enjoy!
