I’m a huge fan of lamb chops and ribs, but this was my first time cooking lamb leg steak. It’s was very flavorful and has the right amount of fat to meat.
It’s a nice alternative to a beefsteak. This particular lamb leg steak is simple and only requires a few common ingredients. I pan-seared the steak and basted it with butter, rosemary, and thyme.
Pan-seared lamb leg steak with herb butter
- 8 oz. Lamb leg steak
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1-2 tbsp cooking oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- kosher salt and black pepper
- Pre-heat a cast iron or any heavy skillet to medium-high
- Season the lamb with kosher salt and black pepper
- Coat the skillet with the cooking oil and place the lamb in the pan. Sear for one minute and flip and sear for another minute.
- Turn the heat down to medium and flip the steak
- Add the butter, garlic, thyme and rosemary to the skillet and stir to mix. Begin basting the steak and cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip and baste for another 2-3 minutes.
- Let the lamb steak rest before cutting
