Under the Grill, on the BBQ or Braai, these Spring Lamb Cutlets would be delicious.

Spring Lamb is tender, juicy with a delicate flavour only found at this time of year. We source our lamb from Smithfield Market to bring you the best on offer at any time. If you want to find out more about the lamb we have in the shop have a look here. This recipe would also so work well for a lamb steak cut from the leg or you could also try a loin chop. For those with a larger appetite go for a Barnsley chop which is double the size being two loin chops from both sides of the animal in one peice.

Not only tasty but quick and easy to prepare.
