Lamb steaks are an excellent choice for your BBQ. They are juicy, flavourful, and easy to prepare.
When shopping for lamb steaks, look for cuts that are about 1 inch thick and have a good amount of marbling. Marbling is the fat that runs through the meat and adds flavour and juiciness. You can also ask your butcher for recommendations on the best cuts for your BBQ.
