  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • juice ½ lemon, plus wedges to serve



    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Olive oil

    ol-iv oyl

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 4-6 lamb cutlets, depending on size
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt


  1. Mix together the pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, olive oil and chilli powder, then toss the cutlets in it. Cover and leave in a cool place for 2-3 hrs.

  2. When you are ready, heat the grill to high. Lift the cutlets out of the marinade and scrape what is left into a bowl. Mix the yogurt into the leftover marinade and add 1 tsp salt. Brush some of the mix over the cutlets on both sides and place on the grill tray – make sure it’s about 5cm below the grill. Cook for 2-3 mins each side, brushing with additional yogurt mix when turning. The cutlets should be browned and just beginning to scorch. Serve with lemon wedges.

I chose this recipe to use up some pomegranate molasses (Sainsburys sell 300 ml bottles). The lamb was delicious. It was tangy in a good way. I served it with broccoli and couscous. The husband, who is not keen on lamb, devoured it all.

these were too tangy .....the molasses are very tangy. I was disappointed with this recipe. : (

I couldn't find pomegranate molasses either and my lamb was due to go off, so I thought I would soak it in pomegranate juice instead... I have then mixed a bit of the juice with the youghurt and lemon juice and brushed the steaks with it before grilling.
I'm sure it would have been totally different had I used the real thing, but it still gave a nice subtle flavour and the meat stayed very moist.

Hia Jane
If you type in the asian cookshop you will come across a website that sells this. Just type in pomegranate mollsses in the search bar on the site, you will find this on the left handside near the top, its a yellow box. It costs £3.99 of course there will be postage i think it was £4 something. x
