Detailed steps for preparing Lamb Seasoning
1) Mixing all the ingredients
Now there are two different methods by which you can mix the ingredients.
If you want a fully grounded rub, you will have to use the food processer to ground the ingredients finely into a powdery form.
Secondly, if you are fine with the raw mixing, take a zip bag or a small bowl, or an air-tight bottle. If you have the zip bag or airtight bottle, put all the ingredients in it and shake them well until thoroughly mixed.
If you will use a bowl, put all the ingredients in it and whisk them well. You will have the perfectly mixed rub for lamb dishes.
2) Using this rub to marinate in cooking lamb
While preparing your lamb roast or any other lamb cuisine, brush some extra virgin olive oil and then apply spice blend to the meat to infuse with the meat properly.
3) Storing the leftover lamb seasoning
Put all the leftover seasoning in an air-tight container or zip bag and place it in the refrigerator. Whenever you want to use it again, always shake or stir before using it.
