Lamb Lolly Guaranteed to Please
This recipe is a cinch to make and the tasty reward is spectacular. Whether you are entertaining or enjoying a casual evening at home, trust me your taste buds will thank you.
I used the Costco Rack of Lamb. Lamb tends to be one of the more expensive meats, which is great that Costco carries it for a good price.
First using a sharp knife cut into individual pieces. I normally would trim the fat, however that is where you get a lot of the delicious flavor.
After cutting into individual little chops, generously seasoned both sides with sea salt and pepper.
For 1.5 lbs of meat I zested 1 lemon, mashed 3 cloves of garlic, and squeezed the juice of the 1 lemon together in a bowl.
Massage the rub into the meat and let sit for a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. This gave the meat time to marinade and also come to room temperaturre before grilling.
Fire up the grill to medium high and grill until desired doneness. We do about 3 minutes per side. I prefer my lollies to be medium rare to medium. Just make sure the grill is hot enough to sear the meat and get a nice crust.
How pretty does that look? Well, it tasted even better!!!! Very tender, it's melt in your mouth goodness.
I paired it with grilled cauliflower which was also extremely easy.
Brushed cauliflower florets with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and grill until nice char marks.
Easy, healthy meal that presents itself so elegantly and best of all, very little cleanup.
This looks great! Would you make quinoa with it?ReplyDelete
Quinoa would work, but I would cook it in chicken broth and add fresh herbs. Otherwise, it can be bland.ReplyDelete
