I am always looking for ways to introduce new and
interesting flavors into our food. I was very intrigued when I saw this recipe
for Moroccan BBQ sauce and knew that I had to try it. I've often cooked lamb,
but have never used a bbq sauce with it.
thought that this bbq sauce recipe was perfect for lamb as it has enough flavor
to stand up to the meat. The flavor of the cilantro was front and center.
was sweet from the honey and heady with the flavor from the whole star anise and
did not use this BBQ sauce to baste the lamb as it cooked, we enjoyed it on the
lamb after it was cooked. The
lamb is marinated for 24 hours in a mint chutney
prior to grilling.
chose to grill lamb shoulder steaks as they offer much more meat than loin lamb
chops. As it was raining on the day I cooked this lamb I broiled it inside. I
broiled the lamb shoulder steaks 4 " from the heat source, 9 minutes per
side. Like other meats, lamb needs to rest after cooking. I let the shoulder steaks
rest for 5 minutes.
lamb is not difficult at all. If you're looking for information on how to cook
lamb and for some wonderful lamb recipes check out this site - Americanlamb.com.
You'll find everything you need to know about choosing cuts of lamb and how to
cook them perfectly.
read my "cooks tips" following the recipe.
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
cup lemon juice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 whole star anise
1 cinnamon stick (3 in. long, broken into
3/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/4 teaspoon each ground ginger,
ground cardamom, whole cloves, hot chile flakes, and salt.
all ingredients in a 2- to 3-quart pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat;
cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced to about 1 1/4 cups, about
15 minutes. Pour through a fine strainer into a bowl. Makes about 1 1/4 cups.
Cooks tips: I
did not use a low sodium soy sauce so I did not add the 1/4 teaspoon salt called
for later in the recipe. I didn't miss it. I also let the mixture simmer for 1
hour. For the best results make this sauce a few days in advance to allow the
flavors to mingle.
