I find that I like to make a sweet marinate and then cook it over medium heat in the pan.

This is what I used for the marinate:

  • 3 TBS of honey
  • 1TBS of mint leaves you can also use a TBS of mint extract
  • A cup of orange juice

Then I marinated the Lamb for 30 minutes prior to cooking because I can’t seem to plan ahead. I added salt and pepper to taste.

You will want to grill your lamb in the pan turning it over as it browns. I try not to over cook it. It doesn’t take long so make sure you pay attention.

The internal temperature should reach 135 for rare and 140-150 degrees for medium rare. I like mine on the medium rare side. You can also go to 160 degrees for medium.

Lamb is an easy and favorable dish to cook.
