Simply delicious rosemary lamb steak marinade #recipe from author @DarylWoodGerber

From Daryl:

So easy, so delicious. I love lamb throughout the year, not just at the holidays. I will grill it on the barbecue and broil it in the oven. One of the great secrets in the meat department is a lamb steak. It’s the perfect portion for two, and is always thick and juicy.

My protagonist Jenna in the Cookbook Nook Mysteries likes flavor, and she’s now learning to make difficult and adventuresome recipes, but for a couple of years, when she was learning to cook, five-ingredient recipes helped her feel comfortable in the kitchen.

This is one of those types of recipes. Easy, simple, yummy.

For this marinade, you’ll see I used freeze-dried garlic because (1) I had it on hand and (2) because it doesn’t seem to hurt my stomach as much. I think that’s what happens with beans, too. I can’t really eat kidney beans unless they’ve been cooked and frozen. The freezing takes the ‘gas’ out of them. Amazing, right? It’s all chemistry.


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon freeze-dried garlic (or 1 clove garlic, crushed, if you prefer)

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and baste the lamb steak on both sides. Cover with foil or saran and let marinate for 2 hours.

When ready, heat your grill or broiler, and cook the lamb steak to your liking. I prefer 4-6 minutes a side, like a steak, depending on the thickness. If you like your meat well done, go for 6-8 minutes.


FYI, this marinade would take just as good on chicken!

  1. I love lamb, too! Your marinade is classic and really does make for a great lamb meal.

    1. Thanks, Lil. I know some people are not fans. But I truly enjoy the flavor. Have a great day. ~Daryl

    What part of the animal does your steak come from? The only lamb steaks I've seen are slices from the leg with a bone in it.
