Cooking with GK: dijon lamb chops

by GK on September 29, 2009 · 2 comments

It’s been too long since I posted a date-approved recipe, so here you go. And I maintain my promise of making a video for one of these, but it’s just quicker to post it this way.

When it’s done right, I’ll take lamb over beef almost any day. I love its tenderness and aroma, and I can use all kinds of strong flavors with it. This recipe includes dijon mustard, which gives the chops a real kick. And as with any date recipe I’ll endorse, this is easy to make.

The ingredients are these:

  • 4 to 6 lamb chops
  • 1 lemon
  • Garlic powder
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley
  • Dijon mustard
  • breadcrumbs

And this is how you prepare them:

  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Trim fat from the lamb chops. Rub both sides of the chops with lemon, and sprinkle them with the garlic powder and pepper.
  • Mix together the parsley, mustard and breadcrumbs, and rub the mixture all over the chops. (A great chance to get your hands dirty with her!) 
  • Place the chops in a pan coated with cooking spray and bake them uncovered for four minutes at 500 degrees.
  • Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 15 minutes.

Pair this dish with some salad, rice or couscous, and a full-bodied wine, and you’re all set. Just keep some breath strips around, unless you want her tasting the mustard on you later.

Sounds pretty good! My wife won’t eat lamb though. :(
