Lamb

Today's Sunday dinner plan was lamb stew with barley. However, I thought it would be a shame to cut up the lovely lamb steaks I had purchased the other day. Instead of the lamb stew, I decided to make marinated lamb steaks with rice pilaf.

Marinade recipe:

a little over 1 lb lamb steaks (enough for 3 or 4 people)
Juice of 1 1/2 limes
1 tsp Hawaiian salt
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1 tsp fresh oregano leaves, hand torn
3 large sweet basil leaves, hand torn
3 to 5 garlic cloves, minced.

Process in food processor the above ingredients with the exception of the lamb. Place lamb in a shallow dish and cover entirely with the marinade. Marinate the meat for approximately 3 hours.

When ready, you can either fry, grill or broil the lamb.
