Abstract: In this work, we consider Lie algebras $ \mathcal {L}$ containing a subalgebra isomorphic to $ \mathfrak{sl}_3$ and such that $ \mathcal {L}$ decomposes as a module for that $ \mathfrak{sl}_3$ subalgebra into copies of the adjoint module, the natural three-dimensional module and its dual, and the trivial one-dimensional module. We determine the multiplication in $ \mathcal {L}$ and establish connections with structurable algebras by exploiting symmetry relative to the symmetric group $ \mathsf {S}_4$.
