Default Lamb

Found myself desirous of some lamb this weekend. This turned out to be the best I have ever had whether from my kitchen or in any high end restaurant.

I picked up a nice looking rack and cut it into chops. I threw the chops in a bag with some good Greek marinade for an hour. After meticulously drying them I rubbed them with a bit of EVOO and Greek rub. I then popped them in the smoker over just 20 minutes of hickory at 230 degrees. I wanted to taste lamb, not a tree. I left them in for another 15 minutes in anticipation of a reverse sear.

While that was going on I made a glaze of melted mint jelly, butter, red wine vinegar, worcestershire and blackstrap molasses powders, a lot of crushed garlic, a bit more of the rub and some of the nice quality malbec that I was serving with the meal. I let that simmer and come together.

I got a pan nice and hot and added some avocado oil to it. I flash browned the chops in that. I deglazed the pan with more red wine and added that to the glaze. Then I dropped the chops into the glaze for a minute to finish cooking.

After draining them I sprinkled them with some herbed feta and Maldon salt flakes. Served it with some more mint jelly on the side. They had a perfect red warm center and a slap yo mamma taste. I will most definitely make these again.

I served them up with some garlic butter rice, curry spiced roasted okra, grilled avocado with creamy Greek dressing in the pit, roasted asparagus and red peppers, and thick garlic rye bread. I ended up eating the entire rack that night.

That looks super-mega AWESOME! Well done, sir.

Had some lamb yesterday myself. Every Easter, I take some thick lamb chops, season w/ salt and pepper, then drizzle with blood orange infused olive oil, get some Kingsford pretty hot on one side of the Weber kettle and sear both sides before sliding them to the indirect side until med-rare. My mom won't let me cook them any other way. I threw these together a couple years ago just using what she had in the cupboard and now she insists on it. I might show her this and see if I can get her to let me branch out.

I like to marinate my lamb in an herb pistou of mint, rosemary, parsley, garlic and EVOO.

Grill them rare and serve with a bloody, gamey syrah from the N Rhone or a left bank BDX with a little age on it.

Smoked and grilled off a rack a few months back. My wife absolutely hated it, so I destroyed the entire thing.

Easter dinner started with a Pissaladière and a very nice Sauvignon Blanc. Then, boneless leg of lamb- marinated in EVOO, mustard, garlic and rosemary- grilled over wood coals with Grilled asparagus with balsamic reduction, sherry glazed turnip and parsnip and white beans with anchovies, garlic and herbs. Had a 2009 reserva Chianti and a 2010 Fronsac Bordeaux (La dauphine). Dessert was plum cobbler with a cornmeal lemon topping and a bit of Prunnelle.
Just woke up! Chianti was killer- Bordeaux was just OK- better with something else. Guess I'm more of a leg man than a rack. do like them both however.
