This is an easy weeknight meal.
It will take about 20 minutes to prepare, not including the time to bring the meat to room temperature.
It is a good way to prepare a fattier cut of lamb, like shoulder, or some lamb stew meat, without having to cook it for a long time.
Cooking the meat to medium-rare will preserve some of the amino-acid chains intact, providing you with high quality protein, easy to digest and ready to be assimilated.
