need a new lamb chop recipe, one that doesn't involve herbes de provence, dijon, rosemary, marjoram, oregano, lemon and/or thyme...
Getting tired of my usual variations on lamb chops- usually they end up tasting Provencal or Greek Which is fine, but I'd like to try something new.
Do you have any favourite recipes that don't involve lemon, rosemary, oregano, marjoram, thyme, herbes de provence or dijon?
Does anyone have a good lamb recipe that calls for sumac?
Thanks for any suggestions you have.
you can do the old standard mint sauce (a fresh made mint sauce is actually really good-- i'm not talking about the old shortcut using mint jelly *shudder*)
yogurt marinated lamb chops are good
One of my favorite lamb chop preparations is from My Bombay Kitchen by Niloufer King.
It is actually a marinade for quail, but it translates to lamb perfectly. You toast and grind a mixture of cumin, chiles, pepper, salt and a couple of other spices I can't recall and rub that mixture onto lamb chops that have already been rubbed in a paste made from garlic, ginger and olive oil. Then you add a little pomegranate molasses.
It is my favorite lamb chop preparation to date.
If you're interested, I'll dig out the book and give you specifics.
I just may have to do lamb chops this month now. For sure when the weather cools a bit. Although I should note, I've done this inside in a saute pan and on the grill. Both = delicious!
Thanks BamiaWruz- I guess I included thyme on the list because of the French-ish preps I'm a little tired of making- it takes on a different flavour in Middle Eastern cooking, when it's combined w sumac or sesame. Should get another bottle of pom molasses, to have on hand. Haven't cooked with it for a while.
