Simple, quick and delicious – what more can you ask for in a Keto Dinner? These Keto Lamb Cutlets combine the beautiful taste of Harissa seasoning with creamy, fresh tzatziki. Lamb cutlets are naturally Keto friendly, so adding some extra fats through tzatziki and a tasty side salad make this a complete meal that the whole family will love.
I think this goes particularly well with my Keto Salads, like Roast Capsicum and Chorizo Keto Salad or my Keto Pumpkin and Feta Salad.
You can make your own seasoning if you are so inclined, but Masterfoods have done the hard work for you. I buy mine from Coles or Woolworths (in Australia) and it looks like this: Harissa Seasoning.
Keto Lamb Cutlets with Harissa Seasoning & Tzatziki
Simple, tasty and keto friendly, these keto lamb cutlets use the complex flavour of Harissa Seasoning, paired with creamy and fresh tzatziki for the perfect week night meal!
- 6 Lamb Cutlets 3 per person
- 3 tablespoons Harissa Seasoning
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1/2 Lebanese cucumber finely diced
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon dried mint
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Let the lamb cutlets come to room temperature on a chopping board. Sprinkle the Harissa Seasoning over the lamb, rubbing into the entire cutlet thoroughly.
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place the lamb cutlets into the hot pan, standing up with their fatty side down and fry for 3 minutes to render the fat.
Lay down and cook for a further 2.5 - 3 minutes on each side. You want them a bit pink in the middle for maximum juiciness and flavour!
While the lamb is cooking, combine all tzatziki ingredients. Serve with a side salad loaded with healthy fats for a complete keto meal.
This sounds like a simple but tasty lunch. I’ll be trying it next week.Thank you Rachel.
