We eat lamb once every couple of weeks or so. It's a nice change from chicken, beef, or fish. We have a mint plant on our deck, and I wanted a good use for the mint leaves, so I came up with this dish. The fresh mint really adds a nice flavor to the lamb. This lamb goes especially great served with wild rice, or Roasted Cauliflower, or Cooked Lentils with Avocado Topping.
Minted Lamb Morsels Recipe
3/4 to 1 lb boneless lamb leg
10 fresh mint leaves
Salt and pepper
Mince the fresh mint leaves. Cut the raw lamb meat into small bite-sized pieces, removing all of the fat. Put the lamb pieces and the mint into a medium-size mixing bowl and drizzle a little olive oil over it. Mix together the lamb, mint, and olive oil. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you're ready to cook it.
Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray, heat it to High heat, and add the minted lamb. Add salt and pepper to taste, and saute the lamb until all of the pieces are cooked through and browned. This will take about 6 minutes. Serves 2 adults (and one small child).
