Sumac and Wild Garlic Crusted Dirty Lamb Steaks

lambsteaks

 

Sorry guys, am on a bit of a roll with the “Dirty” style of BBQ at the moment, and am coming u with some amazing new recipes that I just want to share. These wonderful lamb leg steaks just screamed at me to cook them “Dirty”. Fire and lamb are a heavenly match.

Sumac is an intensely fruity slightly sharp spice from the Middle East and Med, and goes perfectly with lamb. I used a baste of 2tbsp sumac, 2 tbsp rock salt, a bunch of wild garlic, 4tbsp olive oil, 1 garlic clove, a sprig or two of flat leaf parsley, a tsp of black pepper, and the juice of half a lemon, all blitzed up in a spice grinder.

Place the lamb steaks straight on the coals and brush generously with the sumac baste as they cook, a couple of minutes a side should do it, until they are medium rare. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes before getting stuck into the juicy steak.

I enjoyed mine with a wild garlic, feta, olive and baby tomato salad.

  2. Oh I love sumac. I should imagine that baste was fabulous with the lamb steak.

  3. Oh my word, yes please! I’ve seen three lamb recipes in my feed this morning. It’s too much. I need lamb. Still, in Spain this weekend for much steak.

  5. Fantastic post! I’ve never cooked a ‘dirty’ barbecue, but I love the idea of the charring from the coals. I became a little obsessed with sumac last year but somehow that’s morphed into an equal obsession with all things harissa! I’ll have to revisit the sumac phase and cook this lamb dish. Sounds amazing!

    • Thanks Laura, really glad you like it, such a great way to cook a chunk of meat and get a wonderful crust going, need to have a play with Harissa, but sumac is lovely.
      Cheers

      • Harissa is awesome! If you like sumac I am almost certain that you’ll like harissa. It’s good with everything from proteins to potatoes. Thanks for the reply Marcus!
