Rosemary garlic ground lamb and potatoes all in one skillet (or pot)!

rosemary and garlic ground lamb and potatoes

Have you ever found yourself with ground lamb and no clue what to make with it? My usual go-to is some type of Ground Lamb Curry but several weeks ago I found myself wanting something a little different. I happened to have fresh rosemary and fresh garlic at home and those three things obviously go well together so I decided to combine them to make this delicious skillet: rosemary garlic ground lamb and potatoes. And you guys, now I’m hooked – I can’t get enough of this dish! It has become a weekly staple because we all love it so much.

It’s perfect for any time of the day: breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or heck, all three. Maybe top it with a fried egg if you’re eating it in the morning. Serve it with some rice if you’re eating it for lunch/dinner. It’s hearty, filling and so, so flavorful. There’s a bit of a kick to it too – courtesy of the serrano pepper (don’t leave it out unless you must!).

I LOVE the combination of rosemary, garlic, and lamb – the flavors go together perfectly. But have you noticed that you really only find this combo when making a “fancy” cut of lamb? Like lamb chops for example (see my Broiled Rosemary Lamb Chops or my Rosemary Balsamic Lamb Chops as proof, heh). Well, you don’t have to have a special occasion to enjoy this combo of flavors, especially when you’ve got ground lamb. Ground meat is an “everyday protein” and ground lamb is more accessible and more economical, especially when you compare the cost to other cuts. So treat yourself while staying within means!

“This is the most outrageously delicious dish I’ve made in a long time. I almost never trust recipes as written but this was so spot on. Thank you!”

If you love garlic, rosemary, and lamb (who doesn’t) then I am sure you’ll love this recipe. Our favorite way to eat this dish is alongside Basmati Rice and a side of greens. Or you can always eat a bowl of this by itself.

    Do you parboil the potatoes first? I make fried potatoes on a regular basis and they always spend a short time in boiling water first. Just a thought and a question.

    Good recipe, though I’d make a few changes:

    – season while the meat and onions are cooking, otherwise they end up tasteless
    – deglaze with something afterwards, all the fond from the lamb goes no where in this recipe
    – consider boiling potatoes or something first; they take the longest and will be no where near done by the time the meat is well well well done
