Our Favorite Lamb Recipes Will Convince You to Cook This Delicious Meat
Lamb is an absolutely delicious meat that doesn't need to be reserved exclusively for special occasions. Its tender texture and mild flavor is fabulous grilled, braised, or sautéed any night of the week. Here are nine quick lamb recipes that come together in under one hour and are guaranteed to convince you to make this tasty protein all year long.
Try our Grilled Lamb Burgers with Yogurt-Feta Sauce as a delicious alternative to the usual beef or turkey burger. The ground lamb is lean and very mild and pairs well with the tangy sauce. Plus, chopped tomatoes and fresh cilantro add an attractive pop of color that makes us want to dig in immediately. Serve with roasted potatoes on the side as a substitute for French fries.
If you have more time, try making Grilled Lamb Loins. The majority of this recipe's time goes toward marinating the loins in an earthy blend of coriander, cumin, cinnamon, thyme, and rosemary. The recipe only requires 15 minutes of prep work and 12-16 minutes on the grill. Another recipe that makes great use of this succulent meat is our Seared Lamb Loin Chops, which is pictured here. The preparation couldn't be faster, easier, or simpler—just season lamb loins with salt and pepper and sear in a sizzling hot cast iron skillet until they're charred on the outside and juicy red on the inside. In less time than it takes to watch an episode of your favorite television sitcom, dinner is served.
Whether you top a cast-iron skillet pizza with ground lamb (genius, right?) or sear the meat simply and serve it alongside a side of roasted vegetables, there's no time like tonight to cook lamb.
