It’s beginning to look a lot like Friendsgiving!
If you are planning to nosh out on a bevy of dishes that help celebrate this season of friendship, then I have a main dish item you and your crew are going to love. It is pretty easy to make and takes a little over an hour to create from start to finish. It is also a great alternative to the status-quo of turkey, Cornish hen, or chicken, and tastes delish!
Fans of lamb know that it can be savory with a hint of sweetness, and offers tender and juicy meat protein that most every meat eater likes. I was late to the lamb party, but this recipe was a game-changer for me. After making it a few years ago for my family, I instantly added it to my rotation of dishes.
What’s so good about my Rosemary Lamb Steaks Recipe is that it tastes even better the next day! Once the rosemary and other ingredients marinade overnight, they help make the lamb even more moist and tender, which is an even better tasting meal the next day. Be sure to make enough for seconds (or thirds!).
Here’s what you will need:
- 4 lamb steaks or lamb chops
- 2 medium sized shallots
- 1 tbs black pepper
- 1 tbs season salt
- 1 tbs kosher salt
- 4 sprigs of rosemary
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, diced
- 2 tbs Irish butter
Here’s how to make my Rosemary Lamb Steaks
- Season to taste lamb steaks/chops/rack with salt, pepper, and season salt.
- Place lamb in skillet with 1 tbs olive oil and brown on both sides
- Set lamb aside to cool
- In small bowl, mix shallots, pepper, kosher salt, rosemary, garlic, Worcestershire sauce in bowl and stir with spoon
- Place 1/2 tbs olive oil on baking pan, then add browned lamb on the pan
- Pour rosemary mixture on top of lamb
- Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
- Remove lamb from oven, then place a square of Irish butter on top of each steal/chop
- Put back in oven for another 10 minutes
- Take lamb out of oven, then let rest
- Serve on top of potatoes or rice
As a side, you can make buttered potato casserole or serve on a bed of white or brown rice. The possibilities are endless!
Here are a few of my tips for a fun and festive Friendsgiving:
Having a theme for your Friendsgiving fete is always a good idea. You can choose a more formal sit down style, or opt for a buffet style with a makeshift photo booth with props.
This year, we are doing a Friendsgiving that is serve-yourself style with a checkered tablecloth and fall-esque embellishments.
A fun and well-talked about Friendsgiving should include a few games. Card games like Uno and board games like Monopoly or Scrabble always are a hit. You can even give small prizes to the winners, too.
Take it home
Make sure to have plenty of storage-ware for your Friendsgiving guests to take home with them. Fill it with goodies from the meal and leave a cute message on it to continue the Friendsgiving vibes.
