Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless leg of lamb
  • 3 Tbs vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup red pepper jelly
  • Colorado Potato & Fig Salad1 lb Colorado russet potatoes
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried California mission figs
  • 2 Tbs chopped oregano
  • 2 Tbs chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Directions

  • Slice lamb leg in approximately 1/2-inch-thick cutlets; rub with vegetable oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place on hot grill about 2 minutes per side or until medium-rare to medium. Do not overcook.
  • In a small sauce pan, warm red pepper jelly to liquefy.
