Lamb ---Test cooking it in ridged cast iron skillet

I like Penn Dutch Meats down here but have been disappointed w their lamb. Their lamb loin prices can be great w on sale. $4.99/lb

So went to Publix and got the cheapest cut they had. Lamb shoulder
Heated up my cast iron fry pan which has ridges
After 5 minutes I put the lamb on and cooked each side 4 minutes at highest heat

Took it off and put on plate to rest for 5 minutes
Then cut the meat off piece by piece and sprinkled a scant bit of sea salt on each piece before popping it into my mouth. Simply delicious. Lamb w sea salt as the only seasoning.
This is a good test for any lamb

Next time I will have some bread and pickled hot pepper on the side to eat with my grilled lamb. This is how Santarpio's serves their lamb. Hmmmm..maybe I'll put a few drops of liquid smoke on the lamb before "grilling" it in my cast iron pan
