  • 5 g Moroccan spice mix
  • 15 ml Olive oil
  • 150 g Lamb backstrap
  • 100 g Couscous
  • 100 g Mixed vegetables


  • Mix the Moroccan spice mix.
  • Prepare the backstrap by rubbing it with olive oil and the spice mix. Marinate for 1 hour if possible to enhance the flavor infusion.
  • Cook the lamb on a stove or BBQ at medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 59°C/138°F for a juicy medium-rare finish.
  • Let the lamb rest for 3 minutes on a rack to allow the juices to redistribute, which ensures the meat stays succulent.
  • Finally, slice the rested lamb into thin slices, about 0.75 – 1 cm thick, and serve it with a side of yogurt sauce.
