So these Asian Lamb Lollipops are the greatest most delectable things on this green Earth.
Juicy, tender, flavorful.
Not your traditional chops and I was a curious on how these flavors would play with the gamey meat of lamb, but oh man was it a good gamble! Inspired recipe from Chef Sam Choy on the Food Network, he made this on Best Thing I Ever Made and I knew instinctively that I would love it. He was right, they are highly addictive, invite some friends over and you’ll watch these disappear.
These lamb chops are particularly special because they come from my talented butcher friends at The Cloven Hoof, all local meat, from Tucker Family Farms. Lamb was butchered on Wednesday and on my plate by Friday. Can’t get fresher than that!
You’ll notice I have a few more recipes on the blog where the meat comes from The Cloven Hoof, but be prepared for more. Originally they were my favorite stop at the local farmers market, but now they have their own brick and mortar..right down the street from my house.
Yes, things are going to get tasty.
This recipe is so easy. Marinate the chops for 4 hours and it takes literal minutes to cook them up. Steam up some rice, roast some veggies, and you have one delicious meal.
Wine Pairing Recommendation; Rosé! Yes way Rosé, the acidity, fresh, floral notes in the wine balance this meal perfectly.
If you’re not crazy about searing these off in a pan on your stove, heat your broiler on high and place lamb chops on a pan. Broil 2-4 minutes per side.
Serve and Enjoy!
