Mutton Lettuce Wraps

Amy Mattias
Summertime calls for fresh veggies, herbs, and grilled meat. July’s recipe incorporates all that into a delicious, unique meal featuring Lava Lake Lamb’s newest offering - mutton. Mutton is meat from a mature lamb, or sheep, enjoyed by cultures around the globe for its earthy flavor. Popular in the Middle East and Europe, it pairs well with cooling ingredients like cucumbers and mint, as well as flavorful spices like cumin and coriander.



Mix together sauce ingredients and chill for an hour, no more than 24 hours before serving.

Turn on grill to medium. Or, use a cast-iron pan on the stove top or in the oven at 400 degrees.

Combine meat, herbs, and spices. Form oval patties, to slide onto a kebab skewer. You also could form a traditional circular patty for a burger or meatballs.

Cook for approximately 4 minutes per side, 8-10 minutes total, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.

Serve meat with a good helping of the yogurt sauce with optional garnishes and enjoy!
