Spicy Lamb Steaks or Lamb Chops
Lamb Steak or Chops Masaledar
This is what I call my ‘this and that’ recipe. I make a marinade for steaks and chops often by mixing various things found in an average kitchen cupboard/fridge. All amounts are approximate and need to be adjusted according to taste. Serves 7-8
8 lamb steaks. Always buy good quality meat for best results.
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and squeezed through a garlic press
2 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce ( 1 tbsp. Encona is a good substitute). If you don’t have it, use any other chilli sauce or chilli oil
1 tbsp. sherry
1 tbsp. light Soya sauce
1 tbsp. Worcester sauce
1 heaped tbsp. whole grain mustard sauce.
1 tbsp. ground mint leaves. or 1 tbsp. Mint Sauce
1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper.
Salt if necessary
2 tbsp. olive or other cooking oil.
Place all marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix. Taste and adjust ingredients from the list according to your taste.
Add lamb steaks or chops and coat them well. Keep in the fridge overnight for 5-6 hours, in a sealed container.
Place on a wire wrack or an aluminium foil lined tray and grill on each side for 5-7 minutes, until well cooked and slightly burnt looking. They can also be cooked in a pan or a griddle. Or oven cook at 200C for 20-25 minutes.
