Get ready to cook up some deliciousness! You’ll need 1 lb of boneless lamb cubes, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp chili powder, 2 teaspoons of garlic paste, 2 tablespoons of rosemary leaves and a pinch of salt. Make sure you have all the ingredients prepped and ready before you start cooking.
To start, you’ll need to brown the lamb cubes. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or ghee. Once the oil is hot, add the cubed lamb and cook until it’s golden-brown. This should take about 8 minutes. Then remove it from the pan and set it aside. Next, add 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp of chili powder, 2 teaspoons of garlic paste and 2 tablespoons of rosemary leaves in the same pan and stir everything together. Return the lamb cubes back to the pan along with a pinch of salt. Stir everything together to coat the lamb cubes evenly with the spices then lower heat to medium low and let it simmer for 10 minutes or until its cooked through - stirring occasionally to make sure nothing browns too much or sticks to the bottom of the pan. Serve your Lamb Tibs warm with a side dish like rice or roasted vegetables!
Once you’ve let the lamb marinate, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the cubes of lamb in batches, making sure they get nice and browned on all sides. This will help to develop flavor and lock in moisture. Once all of the cubes are seared, remove from the pan and set aside for later.
Next, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and toss in the diced onions. Cook for 5 minutes until aromatic and lightly caramelized. Add fresh rosemary, minced garlic, a pinch of salt and black pepper to the onions and fry for a further 2 minutes. Return the seared lamb cubes back to the pan and stir to combine everything evenly. Pour in beef broth or stock and let the mixture simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce is reduced by half. Finally, taste it to make sure all of your seasonings are just right, before serving with perfectly cooked basmati rice. Enjoy!
Now, add the cubes of lamb to the pan and let them sear without moving or flipping them for at least 1-2 minutes. This will prevent them from sticking to the pan and create a nice layer of browned exterior. Once the first side has browned, flip and repeat on all sides. Continue until all sides are nicely seared.
Add in the garlic, ginger, and cayenne pepper with a pinch of salt. Mix together and let it cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Pour the tomato sauce into the pan and give everything a good stir. Let the mixture simmer on medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once desired consistency is reached, add in any other seasonings you would like at this time such as black pepper or additional chili powder. Taste test it and adjust seasoning if needed before serving over rice or with flatbread.

Begin by gathering all of the ingredients for the Lamb Tibs recipe. For this dish, you will need 2 lbs. boneless lamb cubes, 2 onions, 1 jalapeno pepper, 3 cloves of garlic minced, 2 teaspoons ginger minced, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional), 1/2 teaspoon each ground cumin and ground coriander, 1/4 cup olive oil, and salt to taste. When you have all of your ingredients together it’s time to get started!
To prepare the lamb for cooking, start by mixing the paprika, chili powder, cumin, coriander, olive oil and salt together in a bowl. Once combined, add the cubed lamb to the mixture and mix until each piece is evenly coated. Let sit for at least 15 minutes to let the spices marinate into the lamb before cooking.
Marinating the lamb provides it with extra flavor and tenderizes the meat. If you want to add even more depth of flavor, try using a combination of olive oil, garlic and rosemary as your marinade as well. The key is to use enough oil so that every piece of the cubed lamb is coated in marinade before being cooked. This will ensure that each bite is bursting with flavor when you serve your dish!
