Diced green chilies and red pepper sauce deliver some nice heat to these saucy lamb sirloin steaks.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 American Lamb sirloin steaks or 6 shoulder chops (approximately 2 pounds), cut 3/4 to 1-inch thick

Directions

  • To make barbecue sauce, heat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Cook onion for 4 minutes. Add brown sugar; stir until melted. Add remaining ingredients; heat through and set aside.
  • Grill lamb steaks 4 inches from medium-hot coals for 7 to 10 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness: 145° F for medium-rare, 160° F for medium, or 170° F for well. Baste chops frequently with sauce during the last 7 minutes of cooking.

Buying Lamb: When buying lamb, look for firm and fine textured meat. The fat should be firm, white and well-trimmed.
