Garlic Rosemary Lamb Steaks cooked in the iron skillet. Easy recipe infused with herbs and butter. The garlic adds not only flavor but also it’s great as an anti-inflammatory.

We took that opportunity to shoot pictures and share the recipe with all of you here. Hence I don’t cook lamb often. Honestly, it’a super rare occasion. My son’s are both very fond of lamb but my husband won’t eat it.

To be honest I think with him its a texture thing. Consequently, he had a pita last night that he actually liked. So, I guess it really depends on how well the lamb is cooked.

Infusing the steak with the flavors of butter, rosemary, and garlic really help to bring out the natural taste of the meat. Similarly, the aroma of the rosemary is fantastic to boot. When it comes to cooking steaks indoors I have to say I always resort to my skillet.

Therefore I think I am going to buy a new one next week from Lodge. I love the one that you can use to get the grill marks. However, I am trying to decide if I want red or Caribbean blue. Suggestions?

Skillet tips:

While cooking I like to scoop the butter and rosemary over the steaks. I like to hear that sizzle when they hit the pan. First, if you don’t have the sizzle the skillet isn’t ready yet.

Secondly, we served these steaks up with a sea salt asparagus that was amazing. Hence I stole a piece from my son’s plate. He really enjoyed these steaks and I hope you do too!

    What cut of lamb do you prefer? I’ve tried shoulder and leg steaks and they are tough. It could obviously be something I’m doing? We love lamb, but I’m not the best cook!

  2. Sounds yummy…if I cook the lamb steak at night, can I cook and store the other cooked steak in the fridge for the next day? More importantly can it be reheated?

    1. Yes, you could store it in a sealed package but when reheating I would highly suggest a few minutes each side in the pan to bring it back to temperature. I wouldn’t store it longer than a day int he fridge though.
