Campsite cooking: Greek lamb steaks with rosemary roasted potatoes


  More meat-based recipes

In association with Outdoor Revolution

For a taste of the summer, grilled lamb steaks, cooked in a flavoursome Greek marinade, make a delicious but simple campsite dinner.

Serve with baby potatoes done on the barbecue, creamy tzatziki and a simple salad for a Mediterranean feast

Ingredients (serves four)

For the lamb
  • 4 lamb steaks (or chops if you prefer)
  • 120ml olive oil
  • 75ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 4 chopped or minced garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the potatoes
  • 500g baby new potatoes
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • Salt and pepper

How to cook it

Combine all the marinade ingredients – oil, lemon juice, oregano, rosemary and garlic – in a resealable bag and mix well.

Put the lamb steaks in the bag and coat them with the mixture, leaving to marinate in a cooler for at least 15 minutes (or the longer the better).

While the meat is absorbing the flavours, mix the potatoes, oil, rosemary and seasoning until well coated then divide up into four squares of aluminium foil. Fold up the sides of the foil, leaving room for the heat to circulate inside.

Cook the potato parcels on the grill for around 35 minutes

Cook the lamb chops on the grill until caramelised on the outside and medium rare in the centre, or to your own preference.

Leave the lamb to rest for five minutes, then serve with the potatoes, tzatziki and a simple feta cheese salad.
