I’m back in the kitchen! I absolutely love cooking! Most days I do it for myself, sometimes for friends, and when I can I cook for family. I love feeding people and leaving them with full tummies and clean plates. A few weeks ago I challenged myself to buy a rack of lamb, and do something with it. It sat in the freezer for a while, and I finally decided that it can’t be harder than anything else I’ve done (I made Thanksgiving dinner for over 15 people last year).
I took a look in my cabinets and my pantry to figure out what exactly I’d do with that big hunk of meat. I wasn’t sure if I should roast the whole rack, cut it into chops, or throw it on the grill. I don’t have a grill and I’m pretty impatient so chops was the final call.
I bought a bottle of really good balsamic vinegar a few months ago and I picked up some dried cherries to go in my salad. I thought that would be the start of an amazing glaze for the lamb chops. I was right. I paired the glazed chops with some basic sides, I was hungry and in a rush to eat the chops. Just a little rice and roasted sweet potatoes. I put olive oil, salt, red pepper, and honey on the potatoes and cooked the rice the good old fashioned way. Try this recipe out and let me know what you think!
