I love grilled lamb chops! LOVE!
I finally picked up the free-range lamb chops I had ordered from a vendor at the farmer's market. The first time they accidentally handed me chicken gizzards instead of lamb chops. I was quite sad when I got home and opened the package, believe me. Then each week when I returned to trade for my lamb chops they had run out. So I was very happy to finally get them in my hands!
I marinated the chops in oregano, thyme, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and red pepper all day while at work. When I got home I heated up the grill pan and liberally salted the chops. I grilled them while in another pan I sauteed zucchini and red peppers in the left over marinade. YUM! I served this with some greens, a few pomegranate seeds and a glass of spanish red wine.
These were the best lamb chops I have ever made. Perfectly salty, perfectly cooked. A little fatty but tender and delicious. Tasty treat!!!
I saved the bones for stock. Do you think I could combine them with chicken bones or should I wait until I have enough beef and lamb bones to make "ungulate" stock? :)
I hope you are all having a terrific week! My job has been sucking lately...sucking the life out of me! haha! Is it crazy that cooking is such a good outlet for me to escape the stresses of work? I am going on vacation next week though, can't wait!!! YAY!
It's almost Friday!!! Any exciting plans for the weekend?
