This casual meal is easy to make and very easy to enjoy



  • 700 g True Aussie lamb steak (round or topside)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp brown or palm sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • steamed jasmine rice to serve
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger



1.Cut the lamb into long thin strips. Combine the lamb strips with the ginger, garlic, sugar, fish sauce and sesame oil. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours if time permits (30 mins is sufficient).

2.Soak 8 bamboo skewers in cold water. Combine the lime juice, sweet chilli sauce, chopped coriander and chilli. Spoon into a small bowl to serve as a sauce alongside the lamb.

3.Thread the lamb onto the skewers. Brush lamb lightly with oil. Preheat the barbecue char-grill plate to hot before adding the skewers.

4.Let the lamb skewers cook on one side until moisture appears before you turn. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and cover loosely with foil to rest skewers for 2 minutes before serving. Serve the lamb sprinkled with the toasted sesame seeds, serve the sauce on the side.

Serving suggestion: Serve with steamed jasmine rice

Tips: Replace the round or topside steaks with lamb fillet/tenderloin, lamb eye of shortloin/backstrap if you like.


Tips: Meatballs and burgers should always be thoroughly cooked. They should not be served rare or pink. A good guide is to insert a skewer into the thickest part; if it is ready to eat the juices will be clear.
