WHY SHOULD I GRILL LAMB?

MARINATE YOUR LAMB

Marinating your meat is more than adding flavor and spice-  it also tenderizes it. The acid in lemon juice breaks down the meat so when you bite into it it is super tender. The oil helps keep juices in. The Garlic and herbs add tons of flavor to every bite.

WHAT DO I MARINATE MY LAMB IN

  • LEMON
  • CUMIN
  • OREGANO
  • GARLIC
  • OLIVE OIL

MAKE YOUR CHIMICHURRI FOR THE GRILLED LAMB RECIPE

Chop up your herbs and ingredients and place them in a bowl to merry.

Add your

  • Parsley
  • Garlic
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Lemon juice
  • sea salt
  • olive oil

GRILL YOUR LAMB

Now that the lamb has marinated (for at least an hour) it’s time to grill. Preheat your grill too high. When hot, place your lamb on the grill for about 5-8minutes. Flip and cook for another 5-8 minutes. You want nice grill lines and crust formed on the lamb. Double check the internal temp of the lamb. When it is just about 145 remove from the grill.

LET YOUR LAMB REST FOR AT LEAST 3-20 MINUTES

As your lamb rests for about 20 minutes after it reaches 145 degrees- it will continue to cook for a few minutes. By allowing the lamb to rest, the moisture is reabsorbed and your meat will be tender and juicy.

ADD YOUR CHIMICHURRI AS THE LAMB RESTS

While the lamb is still hot add a good helping of chimichurri. The herbs and garlic will infuse into the meat.

After the lamb rests slice and serve!
