Hamburger scare? Pshaw!

I made just enough lamb for two, but you can adjust it all as needed:

1 1/2 lbs butterflied lamb leg meat, trimmed very, very well
2 cloves garlic, pasted
2 tablespoons ground cumin
Zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon kosher salt, more to taste at finish
juice of one lemon-- reserved

Place in a zippy bag, marinate overnight. Remove the meat from the marinade and let excess fall away...no need to dry the meat- it makes a yummy coating. Grill over a very hot grill for just a few minutes each side (3-ish or less). Pour lemon juice over the meat upon serving.

(The yogurt has enzymes that tenderize the meat so well that overcooking the meat would be a gross injustice. It works fabulous for chicken, too.)

I am serving mine tonight with marinated cucumber salad, grilled mushrooms and Hood Strawberry (spelt) shortcakes.

Here's to liberty!!
