LAMB

There are few things more Aussie than a piece of lamb on the barbie. That is until you roll that succulent tender lamb in a concoction of fragrant homegrown native Australian herbs. This recipe takes a beautiful loin of Australian lamb and crusts it in a mix of Native Mint, Thyme, Saltbush and Pepper Berry Leaf.

Serve alongside some roasted spuds and a fresh, crisp cos salad with a generous spritz of lemon and you have yourself a true taste of Australia!

We’ve used a back strap loin fillet in this recipe but you can sub it for lamb chops, leg, shoulder, you name it! Just simply adjust the cooking time and temperature accordingly.

Ingredients

  • 2 trimmed lamb loin fillets (back straps)
  • 2 tsp The Spice People Native Mint
  • 2 tsp The Spice People Native Saltbush
  • 2 tsp The Spice People Native Thyme
  • 2 tsp The Spice People Native Pepper Berry Leaf
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 trimmed lamb loin fillets (back straps)
  • 4 tsp The Spice People Native Mint
  • 4 tsp The Spice People Native Saltbush
  • 4 tsp The Spice People Native Thyme
  • 4 tsp The Spice People Native Pepper Berry Leaf
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Add all 4 native dried leaves into a mortar and pestle and give a gentle grind to active their flavours and bind together. Sprinkle the mix onto a board in a single wide layer.
  2. Remove your lamb from the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking (bringing the meat to room temperature will ensure a more even cook and a juicier result). Rub the loins with the olive oil and then roll each one in the herby mix, ensuring all sides are coated generously.
  3. Preheat your BBQ grill to a high heat. Once it’s searing hot, place the herb-crusted loins on the heat and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side for medium rare – Keep turning the loins every 30 seconds or so to ensure an even cook and that the herbs don’t burn. Remove from the grill and rest for at least 5 minutes under foil. Slice into thick pieces, serve and enjoy!
