Lamb Cutlets with Chimichurri Sauce

featured image in blog post number 2

I absolutely adore lamb it’s one of my favourite meats, bursting full of flavour and cooks in minutes. What I love about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to prepare. It is one of my favourite mid-week staples as it takes less than ten minutes from fridge to table and is perfect for al fresco dining during the last few weeks of the summer!

Lamb is such a versatile meat, used in so many different cuisines across the world. Here I’ve chosen to pair it with chimichurri which is an Argentinian accompaniment normally served as an uncooked sauce. Using it as a marinade is an absolute game changer, I really feel that you can never have enough of it, and it’s delicious with lamb.
