Eat hot steak with a simple salad or with your favorite garnish. Good appetite!
No Easter meal is complete without lamb, which has been associated with this festival since pre-Christian times. If you want to have a traditional Easter menu, or simply want to enjoy a delicious meal, we recommend this recipe for lamb chops with herbs.
Garnishes for lamb steak, salads and sauces recommended
Garnishes for lamb steak, salads and sauces recommended. What garnish can you serve next to lamb? Lamb garnish recipes. Recommendations for salads, sauces, dressings and garnishes for lamb. Easter and Pentecost recipes. Garnish recipes. Lamb recipes.
Many readers have asked us to recommend them suitable garnishes for the lamb steak that is placed on the Easter table. They also asked us about salads, sauces and dressings to go with this meat. Here, in the end, we managed to choose some variants of garnishes that can be served with lamb or goat meat.
Which garnish to choose for the lamb? Potatoes? Rice? Polenta? Vegetable sauces? Salads? We have a special section of gaskets on the blog & # 8211 you can see it here.
But not all of this goes well with lamb. Why? Because lamb is considered "heavy meat" (difficult to digest by the human body) and has a specific smell that does not go well with any garnish. Sheep is much easier to digest than lamb because lamb is not yet fully developed (cellular, muscular, anatomically speaking). In addition, lamb is cooked with fairly large additions of fat (oil, lard) designed to tenderize it and protect it from drying in the oven.
We can also make "more dietary" lamb steaks without using excess fat. Tanning is done by different marinating methods. I leave here the collection of recipes with lamb to choose your favorite steak, stew, soup or bread for Easter.
Lamb requires sour salads and greens, herbs: lettuce, spinach, green garlic or mujdei, sour yogurt dressings with mint, aromatic herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage) or dressings with mustard and lemon juice. The recipe for this delicious lamb leg with sour potato salad you can find it here.
Lamb meat goes well with garlic so I leave here the collection of mujdei recipes (from simple to spicy, creamy, green, red, etc.).
Let's see now what combinations of garnish, salad and dressing we can make for a lamb steak or for a stew, stew, etc.
Wash and chop the green onion and green garlic, continue with the rosemary and add all the other flavors in a bowl. We mix them all.
How to prepare meat for marinade
We separate the thighs from the rest of the meat, if we have half a lamb or goat, and we cut the thicker skins with a sharp knife, but we do not remove the fat, because it gives an excellent flavor to the dish. We wash the thighs well and then make notches using the tip of the knife, to fill them with flavors and to allow the wine that we will add later, to penetrate well into the meat.
Lamb stain & # 8211 marinated for lamb
How we flavor meat
Place the thighs in a container high enough and start filling the gaps in the notches. For starters, with a peppercorn in each notch, and then with the dry spice mix. This method of flavoring the meat takes about 10 & # 8211 minutes, and in the end, the meat will acquire a strong aroma.
Add the sunflower oil to the bowl, then the white and red wine. If you can, use a homemade wine because it has a stronger aroma.
Mix and cover the container with foil and put it in the fridge. After two days, turn the meat so that it penetrates evenly on all sides.
We keep the stain, in this way, for at least 3 days, but not more than 6 days.
On Easter Sunday, we keep it in the oven for about 3 hours, together with half of the juice in which it was marinated. Remove some of the bay leaves when we put the tray in the oven. For the first 2 hours, the tray is covered with aluminum foil to stifle the meat. Then, remove the foil and turn the meat to brown.
At the same time we taste the juice and balance it, to taste, with salt and pepper. The temperature should not be too high, it is okay at 150 & # 8211 160 degrees. The juice will decrease and the meat will be very tender and flavorful.
3 garnishes for lamb steak
Because the Easter meal means in 90% of cases a roast lamb or grilled, you always need a garnish to compliment it and give a light sensation next to a heavy meat.
You can put almost any spring vegetable next to lamb steaks. From asparagus and artichokes to potatoes, green beans, peas or carrots.
Roots are our favorites, but we have discovered that potatoes can also be reinvented with a suitable dressing and aromatic herbs, and the flavors of Moroccan cuisine match even better with the traditional lamb steak.
We offer you three tasty recipes, which can be made in large quantities & ndash enough to reach the whole family - and they are ready quickly, so you can prepare them just before you take the meat out of the oven. You can prepare all or only one, but they will definitely be appreciated.

Baked lamb leg - a tasty steak from traditional Romanian cuisine
- Baked lamb leg (Maria Matyiku / Epoch Times) Baked lamb leg
In addition to the classic spices, in the traditional Romanian cuisine the bouquet of flavors of lamb steak is enriched by stuffing with garlic and thin slices of smoked bacon.
The pieces of bacon prevent the meat from drying out during cooking, resulting in a juicy and very fragrant steak with a tender meat that will easily come off the bone.
Lamb steak is served with new potatoes, puree, low spinach and green garlic or your favorite garnish.
a leg of lamb (top),
6 cloves of garlic, a piece of bacon (optional but recommended),
1/2 teaspoon pepper,
1/2 teaspoon paprika,
1 teaspoon of salt or as desired,
a few ground juniper berries,
1/2 teaspoon coriander,
2 tablespoons oil or a piece of 20 g butter at room temperature,
a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme (fresh or dried)
1 piece of celery root,
The oven is preheated to 200 ° C.
The piece of pulp is washed with cold water, then drained well. The lamb meat is stuffed with chopped garlic pieces and smoked bacon.
In a bowl, prepare the spice mixture to grease the steak. First combine the spices: salt, pepper, juniper, coriander, paprika and dried thyme and mix with the 2 tablespoons of oil or butter and some of the remaining garlic from the breadcrumbs (after it has been previously crushed or given through the garlic press).
Grease the pulp well with the spice mixture and put the steak in the preparation bowl.
Place a uniform layer of slices of carrots, onions, peppers and celery around the leg, then pour a little water, dripping lightly on the inside of the bowl.
Sprinkle rosemary and thyme sprigs over the steak.
The steak dish (without lid) is baked for about a quarter of an hour, until the meat starts to brown on top.
After 15 minutes reduce the heat to 150 ° C. Cover the pot with a lid (or metal foil without the lid) and continue cooking in the oven for one hour. Check from time to time that there is enough sauce in the pan. If the sauce drops too much, add a little hot water.
After an hour, remove the dish from the oven, remove the lid or foil. Using a spoon, sprinkle the steak with the sauce formed in the bowl.
Increase the heat again to 200 ° C. Put the steak dish (without lid) back in the oven and cook until the meat is browned and has a golden crust on top.
The vegetables and the sauce left in the pan are particularly fragrant and tasty and are added along with the steak.
Serve the steak while hot with your favorite salad or garnish. We wish you to enjoy it with your loved ones!
Lamb steak with herbs
Ever since I can remember, in our house lamb was cooked only for Easter and only in the 4 classic variants: lamb soup with tarragon or larch, lamb fillet, steak with wine, garlic and bacon and lamb stew, all after classic recipes.
You have to tell Caesar what Caesar is, all the recipes are excellent, but it seems like for a while you feel the need to try a lamb a little differently. And what better combination than lamb and herbs from Provence if you still want to be creative in the kitchen? The recipe is very simple, but get ready for a wave of incredible flavors, both from the lamb steak and from the special garnish we prepared: baked aromatic vegetables.
& # 8211 a big lamb leg
& # 8211 6 cloves of garlic
& # 8211 3 tablespoons mixture of dried provincial herbs
& # 8211 3-4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
& # 8211 salt and pepper to taste
& # 8211 olive oil (approx. 100 ml)
For starters, wash the lamb very well, prepare a tray for steak lined with baking paper and heat the oven to 200 degrees. Then we start the actual work: we put the dried herbs in a bowl and pour enough olive oil to cover them well. Then, using a brush, grease the meat well, on all sides, with the herb oil and place it in the pan, on the baking paper.
With a sharp knife we cut the meat from place to place and put in each cut ½ from a clove of garlic and a sprig of rosemary (a few needles). Bake the steak for about an hour, but because of course the lamb legs vary in size, I don't give you an exact cooking time, but I advise you to check the meat from time to time, to adjust the heat and if you don't like it very browned, as we like, to put a little water in the tray.
For the garnish of aromatic vegetables, you need:
& # 8211 1 kg sweet potatoes
& # 8211 ½ kg of white potatoes
& # 8211 2 green apples (Granny Smith for example)
& # 8211 3 large carrots
& # 8211 2-3 cinnamon sticks + 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
& # 8211 1 tablespoon freshly ground nutmeg
& # 8211 100 gr melted butter
& # 8211 a cup of water (200-250 ml)
Cut the carrots into rounds, peel the sweet and white potatoes and cut them into cubes, wash the apples well, remove the stalks and cut them into cubes without peeling them. Place the vegetables in the pan, pour the melted butter and spices over them and mix very well, using your hands, so that each piece is given through butter and seasoned. Pour over the water, put the cinnamon sticks on top and bake for about an hour, over medium heat, until the vegetables are soft.
Maybe you are also used to the classic lamb steak and in no case have you thought of a sweet and apple potato garnish, especially spiced as if it were gingerbread and not the main course, but it's worth a try! It is a madness of taste and aromas that I am glad to have discovered and that I will use more often. Good appetite!
Rares Burducea recipe: lamb ribs in aromatic herb crust and pistachio with potatoes from Boulangere
Look, it's a little longer and Easter is coming. Reason for celebration and a hearty meal with loved ones. I myself am dead after lamb, so I have a simple, simple recipe, but with great effect for the Easter meal! I recommend a light red wine! My favorites are Pinot Noir or a Feteasca Neagra!
Remove the fat from the ribs on the ribs, leaving the bones clean. Season them with salt and pepper very well.
Grate the Parmesan cheese very finely, put in a mixer: parsley, coriander, thyme, rosemary and pistachios with salt and pepper plus 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and grind everything.
Heat olive oil in a pan and face the ribs, then reach the oven, which is heated to 180 degrees for 6-8 minutes. We take the ribs out of the oven, we "paint" them well with dijon mustard and then we "quottapetam" them in the crust mix, after which they return to the oven for another 3-4 minutes. We take out the ribs and portion them in & quotes & quot of 2.
For the Garnish: La Boulangere potatoes
- 8-10 cubes of butter
- 2 large sliced onions
- salt and pepper
- 5 large potatoes cleaned and cut into slices
- 2 chicken stock dogs
- a few branches of thyme
In a frying pan, melt 2 cubes of butter and sauté the onion, which we season with salt and pepper, until it caramelizes for 15-20 minutes, after which we take it out and leave it to cool. In the same pan, sauté in two tranches with 2 cubes of butter and potatoes for about 5 minutes. in a heat-resistant dish we place in layers: potatoes and onions seasoned with saddle and pepper plus thyme and a cube of butter on each layer, at the end the last row being potatoes. Pour over the 2 cups of chicken stock and put the casserole in the preheated oven at 180 degrees and let it bake for about 25-30 minutes.
