    How should I cook this NZ lamb steak?



    Tis currently deep frozen in me freezer. Am thinking of a garlic and rosemary marinade. Am certainly open to suggestions though.

    As is the method of cooking... fry, grill, roast, charcoal BBQ.

    And side... roast potatoes with butter and gravy go well, but something more exotic?

    And wine... thinking of a rich red like a Rioja.

    All and any suggestions taken. Will probably be for consumption while watching the footie Sunday evening.

    You gotta slow roast that mate, get it nice and tender, then wait for me to come around Sunday with the mint sauce, i will bring some spuds for you to eat

    Mint sauce... of course... will pick some up as I don't currently have it in me kitchen. Hopefully Villa stock it.


    I'll pass on your potatoes though, don't want Poodle hair in 'em.

    Slow roasting is the way.
    But fuck your beloved mint sauce. Try a nice [fresh] basil lamb sauce from the drippings from accompanying roast veges and spuds.


    Personally, I would prefer a decent slab of mutton.
    Lamb is over-rated, therefore so is the pricing.

    Not sure that the steak is large enough, or there's enough fat for a good slow roasting.

    Charcoal BBQ'd with honey and mint dressing is currently in the lead in I think.

    That's a BBQ cut. Don't roast it unless it is semi submerged in some fancy marinade, and basted. Rub it with garlic, rosemary (or oregano at a pinch), salt & olive oil, and Bob's your uncle. Or grill it with the same rub, that will work fine too.

    If you rate yourself as a dago, you could try an ossobucco, but thats very hard work compared to my previous suggestion.

    Defrosted her last night so this morning did a marinade of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, rosemary, bit of thyme, bit of ripped mint leaves, crushed garlic, pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.



    Into a zipper bag, I personally crush the garlic a little before putting it in, and then when everything is in I crush the pieces between my fingers.


    (before extra garlic crushing)

    Think I'll make some hummus today, then tonight or tomorrow BBQ the steak and serve with a good few warm pitta breads, a big side of shallots and sliced tomato, hummus, some mint leaves, and perhaps a mint vinegarette if I make one. Some chips too maybe.

    Just to decide now if I'll open a Rioja I have, or just pick up some nice Weizen beers. Hmmmm.

    And how would you do it?


    Made some hummus and a nice mint sauce while I was cooking tonight's Tikka Masala, and think I'll pick up a load of meat tomorrow for the next week, probably lamb shanks or chops among it.

    We have seen it deep frozen, thawed, marinading, a video about how to do it and then what? Lets see the final product.

    NZ lamb sucks, sorry to say.

    The ubiquitous mint sauce is the evidence.

    Like tomato sauce.

    Served on 3 warm pittas with tomato and spring onion, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Served with hummus and mint sauce.

    Also cut off two baby back ribs from a slab I had just started marinating for a barbie I'm hosting tomorrow, and threw them onto the barbie as a bit of a taster.



    The homemade mint sauce was delish.

    Looks and sounds great!

    Another good method, apart from bbq or grill, is to grill quickly both sides ( a minute or less each side) to seal in the juices, then transfer to a baking dish, add a cup of water, cover and bake for 20 mins until tender.
    Place thin slices of pumpkin in the dish to bake at the same time.

    Remove the baked pumpkin and steak(s), cover to keep warm and set to one side.

    Make a roux from flour and the liquid in the baking dish, add hot water slowly and a cup of red wine and a good pinch of salt, stirring to make a gravy.

    Replace the steaks in the pan, liberally covering the steaks with the gravy, add extra wine as desired and bake for a further five minutes.

    Remove and serve the steaks, covered with gravy, add new potatoes boiled in buttermilk, steamed broccoli and baked pumpkin slices.

    Sprinkle a little mint sauce over the potatoes.
