Pan Fried Lamb Leg Steak

pan seared lamb leg steak

I’m a huge fan of lamb chops and ribs, but this was my first time cooking lamb leg steak.  It was very flavorful and has the right amount of fat in the 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.
