Grilled Lamb Steak with Mushrooms and Marjoram


Chef Ben Spangler.

Grilled lamb steaks are versatile–a great option for any meal of the day. In many countries street grills are set up outside butcher shops or in street markets so customers can have a quick lunch, a bit like healthy fast-food. This recipe features our grass-fed lamb steaks cut from the tender leg with eggs and mushrooms for a late morning brunch, but can easily be grilled alone or with an assortment of other options such as potatoes, leafy greens, vegetables or whatever else you like.
