If you don't see lamb leg steaks at the meat counter, ask your butcher to cut one-inch-thick steaks from the upper portion of the leg. A slice of Vidalia onion rounds out the plate and accents the lamb with its smoky sweetness. To make our Greek Lamb Pizza the next night, set aside one steak and two onion slices.


6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and 1 onion slice)
