Historic mutton steak recipe

I’m always searching the internet to discover new things I can show you. This time I found a story about a historic steak. The mutton steak.

Mutton steak is a lamb saddle from an older sheep. This steak was famous during World War II because Winston Churchill and Roosevelt ate them.

  • A whole lamb saddle
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 3 medium-sized carrots
  • 3 potatoes
  • 1/2 a white cabbage
  • Spring onions
  • Fleur de sell

How to

  1. Trim the lamb saddle by cutting off all the loose flaps of meat and then cut it into steaks. Watch the video on how to do this.
  2. Peel and cut the potatoes into wedges. Slice the cabbage thin and slice the carrots and the spring onions.
  3. Start your grill with two zones, a temperature of about 140ºC and a flat grill plate.
  4. Grill the steaks over direct heat until they’ve got a nice crust. In the meantime, melt a third of the butter on the grill plate.
  5. Roast the potatoes, cabbage and carrots. Melt the rest of the butter in a pan and add the spring onions.
  6. When the carrots start to go soft, and the potatoes are grilled, you lay the mutton steaks on top of the veggies and close the lid.
  7. Cook the mutton to a core temperature of 55ºC (131F). Pour the butter with the spring onions over it all and season the steaks with fleur de sell.
