6 tacos

lamb loin chops with cucumber mint salad and sweet and smoky tahini



  • 1 pound American Lamb stew meat
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Zest of half a large lemon
  • Generous pinch salt & pepper

For Serving:

  • Tortillas
  • Cucumber, (chopped)
  • Roma tomatoes, (diced)
  • Red onion, (sliced)
  • Fresh greens
  • Tzatziki
  • Feta cheese
  • A squeeze of lemon juice


Marinate the American Lamb: Add the lamb to a Tupperware container with all the marinade ingredients. Attach the lid tightly and shake to combine everything. Let marinate in the fridge for about 1 hour.

Grill the Lamb: Heat your grill over medium heat. Add the lamb to a grill pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-10 minutes. Cut into one of the larger pieces to check for doneness - if a larger piece is done, the rest should be too. Smaller pieces will be well done, and larger pieces will be medium well.*

*The USDA recommends an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, followed by a 3-minute rest when finished cooking.

Serve and Store: 

Assemble your tacos with all the fixings! Enjoy immediately. Store leftover lamb meat in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
