Lamb Chops - Quick and Easy

Have you ever cooked lamb chops? There are many methods and fancy recipes to be had in books and on the internet, but here is my favorite way to make them. For 4 darling little lambchops... sigh.... :( heat 2 Tablespoons of ghee in a small cast iron skillet on medium-low heat. If you don't have ghee, you can use kettle-rendered lard.

Place your chops in the pan. Allow to cook gently (adjust the heat so it is not too hot) for 3 minutes. Turn them over and cook for 3 more minutes.

Salt lightly and serve!

The thing to remember with lamb, is that you do NOT cook it at high heat as you can with beef. You do not want to sear the meat. Just cook it gently until it is barely done and then it will be tender and moist.

Be sure to eat all of that good fat. Lamb fat is very healthy.

Oh, by the way, that sort of purple glob is some blackberry jelly a friend made for me. Some people like lamb with mint jelly, but I didn't have any.

  3. When did you get your lamb? I know you had talked about it. That looks so good!
