This is a perfect way to lift the taste of lamb. The longer you marinate it the better.


  • 500g of lamb steaks
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ red onion (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt


Place the garlic, onion, cumin, salt and pepper in a pestle & mortar and grind into a smooth paste. Add the yogurt. Mix this paste into the lamb steaks in a large bowl or plastic bag. Cover and refrigerate until needed (take the meat out about 1 hour before you need it – it’ll cook much better when at room temperature).

When ready to cook, heat a large skillet or BBQ and cook 2-3 minutes per side (depending on thickness) and let rest for 1-2 minutes. The meat should be slightly charred on the outside but juicy and pink inside.


Slice the meat and serve with various meza like, hummus, baba ghanouj, fattoush salad etc…
