I am savoring every last bit of grilling weather we have left with these amazing lamb skewers with homemade tzatziki sauce! I’m using quality Grass-Fed New Zealand lamb steaks from Silver Fern Farms which are great for the grill!
Silver Fern Farms is known for their New Zealand lamb products being 100% Grass-Fed, perfectly portioned and trimmed of all fat so you get really nice lean cuts of meat.
If you’re like me and can taste the difference when using quality meats like this, then you’ll also love these New Zealand lamb products (they also have beef and venison as well)! You can find their products can be found in Fairway Markets, Morton Williams as well as NetCost Market!
- 1 cucumber grated
- 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt I used Kite Hill's Unsweetened Greek Yogurt for dairy-free and vegan recipe!
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Zest from 1/2 lemon
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
- 1 medium garlic clove grated
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 2 8 oz packages of 4 Silver Fern Farm Lamb Steaks
- 2 green peppers
- 2 medium red onions
- cooking oil I used avocado oil
- Pita bread
- Roasted cherry tomatoes see instructions
Take grated cucumber and squeeze excess liquid using hands first and then wrap in a paper towel and remove even more liquid. Place in a small bowl and add in all other ingredients. Mix until combined and then place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Cut lamb steaks into 1-inch cubes. Slice peppers and onions into 1-inch squares. To make your skewers, start with one piece of lamb, one pepper, and one onion and repeat two more times, ending with one last piece of lamb.
Heat a grill or grill pan on high and lightly spray your skewers with a cooking oil (I used avocado oil). Once hot, add skewers making sure not to overcrowd your pan (work on batches if need be). Cook for 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook for another 3 minutes.
Remove from grill and enjoy with your tzatziki sauce!
Roasted cherry tomatoes: drizzle tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper in a baking dish or cast iron pan and roast in the oven at 375 degrees F for 35-45 minutes.
