This simple and elegant recipe for seared lamb steaks successfully combines some of the quintessential flavors of Greek cooking; olive oil, oregano, lemon, garlic and yogurt.


  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup thick Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups mixed salad leaves, for serving
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 lamb steaks, pounded thin


  1. Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the oregano and a pinch of salt and pepper into a small bowl and whisk well to combine. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the yogurt with the garlic and some salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. In a third bowl, toss the salad greens with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the juice of 1 lemon and then set aside.
  4. Rub the steaks on both sides with a bit of olive oil and then sprinkle generously with a few pinches of salt and pepper.
  5. Place 2 teaspoons of olive oil into a large skillet over high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the lamb steaks and sear on both sides for 1-1/2 minutes.
  6. Transfer the cooked lamb to a plate, top with the oregano mixture and then garnish with dollops of the yogurt and garlic blend. Serve the steaks immediately accompanied with the mixed salad.
