Lamb Chops

by Niki (Dayton OH) » Fri Apr 14, 2006 4:29 pm

Last night for dinner I made lamb chops the way my mother used to make them when I was a little girl.

I salted and peppered a thin cut (1/4 to 1/2 inch) lamb chop, then topped with a thin slice of onion, and topped the onion with a thin slice of tomato. Broiled the lamb chops for about 10 minutes on high, about 2 inches from the heat.

We had Patchen's garlic roasted potatoes and green beans sauteed with garlic and pine nuts, and they were really good....and of course, they took me back to my childhood.

Surprisingly, the entire dinner went well with a 2000 Tahblik Marsanne (Australia) that we'd opened before dinner. I'd identified the wine blind at a local wine bar/store a few weeks ago, and as a reward, was got the opportunity to buy their last bottle for $2; my kind of deal!
Cheers,

Niki

Niki, what an interesting way to broil a lamb chop--loaded, if you will. Is there a cultural heritage that that style of broiling belongs to? It sounds really good in the way that some of the simplest preps are--better than the sum of the parts.

Jenise,

My mom was Italian and Scottish, but definitely cooked Italian, so I don't really know if this was influenced by her heritage...I just know it was good :) And yes, serendipitous.

Cynthia,

Not sure of the temp (I didn't measure it) but the lamb chops end up medium rare, and the tomato and onion both cooked.
Cheers,

Niki

Thanks, Niki. That's exactly what I meant by "temp".... :)
