Today we are including the first of Soccerboy’s favourite recipes. A Recipe?! That’s right kids, a recipe. You don’t have to be Thomas Keller to know that at some point, you’re going to have to eat real food instead of some crap that was created in a lab. It might as well be something that tastes good, and hell, it’s grilled. You’re okay.

Grilled Lamb Steak

lamb leg steaks or chops
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
juice of one lime
garlic cloves, minced
fresh rosemary, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Mix together in a bowl, drop lamb in, cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Halfway through marinating time, flip steaks over and return them to the fridge.

Throw them onto a hot grill. FLIP ONLY ONCE. But you already knew that, didn't you?

You can also roast this in a 375 degree oven, or on top of the stove with olive oil and butter.

Hint: Use real butter. In fact, throw out every fake butter product that lives in your fridge right this second. They may be lower in fat, but they are also much higher in chemicals. And wouldn’t you prefer to get your chemicals from something else…?

This goes well with any salad, potatoes (mashed, fried or au gratin), sautéed spinach, asparagus, or broccoli. Anything really, but for the love of all that’s holy, make sure to throw in a vegetable!

OH - you might be surprised to find that lamb is much more affordable nowadays. If you are lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe's, their lamb steaks are cheaper than traditional beef steak!
