Seasoning for Lamp Chops
- cocoa Jan 18, 2007 04:06 AM
Can anyone recommend some seasonings for lamb chops? I'm not too crazy about cumin or mint. I tried just using rosemary and really loved it. But was looking for new ideas or new spices to use on lamb chops.
if you buy a rack from the butcher case, here's a standard:
--have the butcher french the bones for you
--brown the fatty side of the rack on the stove, kiss the sides
--in the food processor: breadcrumbs, rosemary, parsley, garlic, TB of olive oil (you can play here- black olives? dried chipolte? lemon zest?)
--coat the fatty side of the rack in a thin layer of good mustard
--cover the mustard in the breadcrumbs
--finish in the oven
i like lamb chops seasoned with lemon pepper and garlic salt then seared in oil with a couple of pieces of ginger.
With any cut of lamb I usually poke holes in the meat dip it in cream sherry or whiskey, then I sprinkle on salt, pepper, ginger powder and real cinnamon. I press the powder/s into the meat, wait an hour or two then cast iron fry it. If it's a whole or something that'll be roasted I'll pour some peanut oil on to coat an hour or so before I roast.
In the middle east, it's common to season with salt, garlic and cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg. Then grill, etc. however you please.
