With a few simple techniques and a touch of creativity, you can savor the rich and tender goodness of lamb steaks in a way that suits your taste. In this article, I will guide you through three different ways to cook lamb steaks.

1. How To Cook Lamb Steaks on Stove (Pan Seared Recipe)

Ingredients

  • 2 lamb leg steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Season the lamb leg steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Heat a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Allow the oil to heat up for a minute or two.

Place the lamb leg steaks in the hot skillet and sear them for about 3-4 minutes on each side. This will create a nice brown crust on the outside of the steaks. Adjust the cooking time depending on the thickness of the steaks and your preferred level of doneness.

Add the minced garlic and rosemary sprigs to the pan, and continue cooking the steaks for an additional 1-2 minutes, basting them with the pan juices. This will infuse the steaks with aromatic flavors.

Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the lamb leg steaks to a plate. Cover them loosely with foil and let them rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and the steaks to become tender.

After resting, remove the rosemary sprigs from the steaks and discard them.

Slice the lamb leg steaks against the grain into thin slices.

Serve the pan-seared lamb leg steaks with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.

2. How To Cook Lamb Steaks in Oven (Baked Recipe)

Ingredients

  • 2 lamb leg steaks
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, honey, dried rosemary, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to make the marinade.

Place the lamb leg steaks in a shallow dish or a zip-top bag. Pour the marinade over the steaks, ensuring they are fully coated. Marinate the steaks in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, but preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Remove the lamb leg steaks from the marinade and transfer them to a baking dish, reserving the marinade for later use.

Place the baking dish with the lamb leg steaks in the preheated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the steaks reach your desired level of doneness. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the steaks and your preferred level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature—medium-rare is around 135°F (57°C), and medium is around 145°F (63°C).

While the lamb leg steaks are baking, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken slightly.

Once the lamb leg steaks are done, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.

Next, slice the lamb leg steaks against the grain into thin slices. Then drizzle the cooked marinade over the sliced lamb leg steaks or serve it on the side as a sauce.

Serve the oven-baked marinated lamb steaks with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables, couscous, or a fresh salad.

3. How To Cook Lamb Steaks on Grill

Ingredients

  • 2 lamb leg steaks
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, or parsley)

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Season the lamb leg steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Drizzle them with olive oil and rub the oil onto the steaks to ensure even coating.

In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, and chopped fresh herbs until well combined.

Place the lamb leg steaks on the grill grates and close the lid. Grill for approximately 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the steaks and your desired level of doneness.

About halfway through the grilling time, spread the butter mixture over the top side of the lamb leg steaks. Close the lid and continue grilling.

Flip the steaks and spread the butter mixture on the other side as well. Close the lid and continue grilling until the desired doneness is reached.

Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steaks. For medium-rare, the temperature should be around 135°F (57°C), and for medium, it should be around 145°F (63°C). Adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Once the lamb leg steaks reach your desired level of doneness, remove them from the grill and transfer them to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and let them rest for 5-10 minutes.

After resting, slice the lamb leg steaks against the grain into thin slices. Serve them with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted potatoes, grilled vegetables, or a fresh salad.

Now, you know how to cook lamb steaks in 3 different ways. Whether you prefer the smoky char of grilled lamb steaks, the flavorful crust of pan-seared lamb steaks, or the tender juiciness of oven-baked lamb steaks, each method offers a unique flavor.
