Dipping Sauce for Meat?

I like meat just sort of cooked in cubes on the grill or the oven broiler,. Lamb for this Saterday..

But I like a Dipping Sauce..

I like Horse Radish Sour Cream. And also BBQ Sauce, Though I usually use that for Chicken..

any I deas for Lamb? The whole Mint Jelly thing eludes me..

Maybe Chimichurie? or maybe a light Mustard Sauce?

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

I too am suggest a tzatzki sauce, with a good splash of lemon juice and oregano.

Or you could make a dijon mustard- cream sauce. 1/2 C heavy cream, 1-2 tsp mustard per your taste preference, Add a peeled garlic clove stuck on a toothpick. Heat, simmer but do not boil. S& P. Done.

I'd also go with the tzatziki.

Heck, I'd just eat the lamb by itself. It doesn't really need any "stuff" on it.

It appears tzatziki has a lot of fans. I like it too but I also like your idea of using chimichurri sauce.

I think that either chimichurri or tzatziki would be good. Chimichurri is pretty easy to make. We have tzatziki frequently as an accompaniment to grilled meat or chicken, a side with burgers, or as a dipping sauce with veggies.

I keep it simple (unlike Emeril) very similar to GGs recipe. Grate a peeled English cucumber (seedless) with a box grater, salt the grated cucumber and let stand in a colander for an hour to drain out the water. The more water you can drain or squeeze out of the grated cucumber the better. Greek yogurt is easier because you dont need to drain the water out of it. Add minced garlic, a little lemon juice, and some oregano or dill. Thats it.

If Im planning to use it as a veggie dip Ill chop the grated cucumber a little finer with a knife.

I too use cucumber/s but I first peel it then cut in half lenghways then using a spoon I scrap out all the seeds. Then I rough chop it and into a food processor for a quick pulse with just a pinch of Kosher salt added then a couple of quick pulses then into a sieve for only a couple of minutes then a cold water rinse then gently blotted on paper towels to remove excess water then use.
