GAME PLAN

1. While grill preheats:
• Combine potatoes with salt and oil
• Prepare rub for lamb
• Wash and trim green beans

2. While potatoes cook on grill:
• Slice mint for potatoes
• Steam green beans
• Place lamb on grill during last 8 minutes of potatoes’ cooking time

QUICK TIP: Use half the grill to cook the potatoes and the other half for the lamb. Make sure to allow an extra 5 minutes before serving the meal so the potatoes can cool slightly. This also gives the lamb time to rest.
