Za’tar Lamb Cutlets

This is a guaranteed delicious meal which requires very little effort. Plus, the marinade only contains 3 ingredients!

Serves 4-5 people


  • 14 lamb cutlets
  • 2 tbsp of za’tar spice mix
  • 4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 large cloves of garlic (crushed or grated)
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. With a meat mallet, bash both sides of your cutlets to encourage tenderisation. Then place into a large bowl.
  2. Sprinkle over za’tar, then add garlic and olive oil. Massage with your hands. Pop in the fridge to let them marinate for a minimum of 2 hours (the longer you leave, the more intense the flavour).
  3. Heat a griddle pan to medium high heat. Add lamb cutlets, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes or until browned and crispy. Flip, season and cook for another few minutes. Cut into a cutlet to check it’s cooked properly (it should be pink inside). Take off the heat and let it rest on a plate. Repeat with remaining cutlets.

Serve with a bright salad or roasted veggies.
