Lamb chop recipes - It's not often that we indulge in lamb chops, but when we do we both smile in delight. Lamb chops are bone licking good! We have fixed them numerous ways and with different sauces and sides. Here are a few cooking tips...
Lamb chops come in a variety of
different cuts. The most popular and ,in my opinion, the tastiest are
the rib chops. The perfect lamb chop will be about one inch thick. When
purchasing lamb chops, look for a nice light shade of pink. If the chop
is red in color, this usually means it is a bit older than the pink
ones. Also, it is ideal to look for marbling in the chop. The more
marbling the better! The absolute best way to cook a lamb chop is to
grill it. Before throwing it on the barbie, allow the chop to come to
room temperature for best results. This will help alleviate the charring
