Celebrate Australia Day with Kathy Tsaples’ Lamb Cutlets


Arnisia Payithakia
(Lamb Cutlets)

Bring the flavours of Greek cuisine to the barbecue this Australia Day! This recipe from Sweet Greek’s Kathy Tsaples is quick, easy – and so delicious, you’ll be left wanting more…

Prep 20 minutes – Cook 10 minutes – Serves 4


12 lamb cutlets, well-trimmed (buy the best lamb you can — my favourite is organic saltbush lamb)
2 tsp dried Greek oregano
1 tsp salt pepper, to taste
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil


Season the lamb cutlets with a little salt and cook on the barbecue. They don’t need long, just enough time to give them a golden crust on both sides, about 2 minutes for each side.

Have a stainless steel saucepan with a lid on hand and drop the cutlets in as soon as they are cooked. Sprinkle immediately with the oregano, salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil. Put the lid on and toss until the cutlets are coated well with the flavours.

Serve the cutlets nice and hot with warm pita bread, Greek salad and tzatziki.
