The coulotte is a super flavorful steak cut from the top sirloin. That fat on the exterior helps keep the inside of the steak tender and juicy while you’re searing it up. If you’re looking to cook an intimate dinner for your partner this weekend, grab two of these and then you’ll have a little left over for steak and eggs in the morning. Maybe.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📷: @jenmayphoto

This is one of our favorites ways to stretch a pound of meat into a hearty and exciting meal. Combine a pound of ground lamb with 1/2 lb of your favorite mushroom, diced. Add one diced shallot, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper and 1 teaspoon of paprika. Shape into 4 thick and juicy burgers. You’ll basically double your volume while spending a little less and sneaking in the extra nutritional value of mushrooms.

Lamb loin chops are a fantastic cut for beginner cooks. Pat them dry to remove any excess liquid, season moderately, then cook them hot and fast.⁣ ⁣ 📷: @jenmayphoto

Sirloin flap is tender, versatile and potentially our new favorite steak. The texture is similar to skirt and just beckons to be soaked in teriyaki and thrown on the grill. Tacos, kebabs, cheesesteaks, salads. This is what you’re looking for.⁣⁣ ⁣ 📷: @jenmayphoto⁣ ⁣⁣

If you got those cool little sword skewers ready for adana kebabs, we got you covered with the finest ground lamb. Wanna keep it short & sweet? Lamb chops, salt & pepper. Sprinkle all those herbs & spices on after like @cznburak nobody is going to complain. Link in the bio for more springtime recipe wizardry.⁣ ⁣ 📷: @truffleandtoast 👩‍🍳: @isshoni_uk

The best part about Monday is knowing that tomorrow is Taco Tuesday! Why limit it to just a single day? Tacos are lawless in our home. You want to keep it more traditional? No problem, a little pico and a lime (gluten free, dairy free, paleo). Wanna go down the rabbit hole? How about some sliced cukes, red onion and Tzatziki sauce? Either way, you can have this flank steak sliced and seared up in under 8 mins. Have you ever heard somebody complain about having tacos 2 nights in a row? Neither have we. 📷: @jenmayphoto

When we were in Chicago recently we enjoyed a super delicious tonkatsu sandwich (on soft, chewy whitebread!) at Little Goat Diner. It wasn't the only thing we ate, but it was one of the best. We think our pork cutlets could be the foundations of your at-home version. 📷 @littlegoatdiner
