Cumin Topped Lamb Steaks

Lamb is a meat that we simply do not have enough. I always try to cook lamb at Easter and then it tends to become the forgotten meat for the rest of the year.

When I saw some lovely, lean lamb steaks that were half price I snapped them up.

When you think of lamb you immediately think mint. However there are so many other herbs and spices that go perfectly with lamb. Like cumin. That is what I have used in this easy, summer time meal.

This is what I did...

Cumin Topped Lamb Steaks


Lamb steaks
Whole cumin seeds
2 courgettes, grated
1 red pepper, chopped
1 red onion, sliced
New potatoes


1 - Place the new potatoes in a pan of boiling water and simmer until cooked.

2 - Grill the lamb steaks under a medium heat for 10 minutes on one side before turning.

3 - Turn the steaks and sprinkle on the whole cumin seeds, amount depending on taste, and return under the grill for a further 10 minutes.

4 - While the lamb steaks finish cooking heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and add the courgettes, red pepper and red onion. Fry until the onions and pepper start to soften but still have a bit of crunch.

5 - To serve place a bed of courgettes, red peppers and red onion on a plate. Top with the lamb steak and finish with new potatoes.

This is meal is delicious served al fresco in the summer sun.
