American Lamb Steaks
- 4 to 6 American Lamb steaks
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon rosemary, chopped
- 1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
- 1 tablespoon whole black pepper
- Salt, to taste
For the Herb Butter: In a bowl, add garlic, butter, lemon juice, rosemary, thyme, black pepper and salt; mix thoroughly. Refrigerate until 15 minutes before cooking.
Season steaks thoroughly with salt and pepper.
Build a medium to medium-high heat fire in grill or fire pit for direct cooking. Place steaks on the grill; cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 130°F to 135°F for medium-rare.
While steaks are cooking, preheat a skillet for the butter over the fire. Add butter to the skillet; cook until fully melted.
Pull steaks off grill; brush Herb Butter over the top while they rest 4 to 5 minutes. Squeeze extra lemon juice on top, slice into steaks and enjoy!
