An Easy Mint Sauce For Lamb
This super easy lamb sauce is a great addition to any of your favorite lamb recipe. Serving this sauce alongside your lamb (like this Ultimate Leg of Lamb Recipe) is really going to bring it to the next level. Everyone will love all the great flavors! Plus, we have included an option to make it dairy-free, if you need it. Don’t forget to also make a batch of this Lamb Seasoning to up that flavor profile even more!
What You Will Need
- plain Greek yogurt – if you want it to be dairy-free you can use a plain, unsweetened dairy-free yogurt.
- sour cream – we love this homemade dairy-free option!
- garlic – because everything is better with some garlic cloves.
- lemon juice – a little acidity to bring out all the great flavors!
- kosher salt & pepper – a little of each is needed in any great, homemade sauce.
- fresh mint leaves – such a great flavor that is the perfect compliment to lamb!
What Should I Serve With Lamb Sauce?
You can serve this lamb sauce with any of your favorite lamb recipes – personally, we love it with Roasted Rosemary Leg of Lamb, Lamb Chops, a Lamb Roast or Lamb Meatballs! We love to sear lamb and then cook it at a medium-high heat until a meat thermometer confirms an internal heat of 145 degrees F and then serve this lamb sauce on top of the cooked lamb with some fresh herbs for garnish, like fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, or oregano.
How Long Can You Keep Mint Lamb Sauce?
This sauce mixture can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Perfect for making ahead of time, especially if you are making this to accompany a big holiday dinner.
How To Make Lamb Sauce
Gather some fresh mint leaves.
Measure out the rest of your ingredients.
Place all of your ingredients in a food processor or mason jar.
Blend the sauce in a food processor or in a mason jar with an immersion blender until smooth.
Pour into a dish and enjoy!
