Mediterranean Grilled Lamb is great on the grill or in a cast-iron skillet and is perfect for the air fryer.
Lamb is a popular and flavorful meat that is enjoyed in many Mediterranean countries, including Armenia, Greece, Italy, and Spain. I like serving it on our Catholic Seder meal, often accompanied by Balsamic Roasted Vegetables.
One of the best things about lamb is its versatility. It can be served as a main course or as a main ingredient in other dishes, such as salads, wraps, or sandwiches. It is also a great option for summer barbecues or dinner parties, as it is easy to prepare and always a crowd-pleaser.
When serving meat, it is important to let the meat rest for a few minutes before slicing it. This allows the juices to redistribute and makes the meat even juicier and more tender. Remember that the lamb will continue to cook after it has been removed from the heat. If you like your rare lamb, remove it from the heat a few degrees before your desired doneness.
Mediterranean Grilled Lamb is a delicious and flavorful dish that is sure to impress. Its juicy, tender meat and crispy exterior make it a great option for summer barbecues, dinner parties, or any occasion. Whether you are serving it as a main course or as a main ingredient in another dish, this delicious dish is sure to be a hit.
