For the lamb

  • Using a knife, remove the fat and meat fibers.
  • Cut the meat into 1 cm slices and place it in a bowl. Add salt, pepper, rosemary and pour the marinade over it.
  • Mix using your hands so that the marinade completely coats the pieces of the lamb.
  • It is best to let it marinate for 6-12 hours.
  • Place on a non-sticking pan over high heat and let it get very hot.
  • Add the olive oil and the pieces of the lamb. Sauté for 2-3 minutes on each side. It is best to cook it in 2-3 batches so that you do not crowd you pan and your meat cooks properly.
