For some reason I thought it was Spring. Then I look outside today and see nothing but snow. Boooooooo!
Well it ever end?! What can possibly cure my winter blues? B. B. Q. Yup gonna bust out the grill tonight.
My family loves Loves LOVES to B.B.Q. We do it any chance we can. If it’s rainy, windy, or freezing, we just open the garage up and grill. So the snow is not going to stop me.
The boyfriend wants to grill lamb. He loves lamb. I don’t so much. Not at all actually. I need a marinade that will make me like lamb. I decided to use a marinade that is a family favorite. In fact, this is probably one of my favorite B.B.Q. marinades and its super easy to make. It works on any type of meat or on shrimp. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
Grilled Baby Lamb Chops
- 1 lb Petite Lamb Chops
- 2 tablespoon Lemongrass thinly sliced
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1/4 cup Oyster Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce or regular Soy Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Sugar
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon MSG (yes, I said MSG)
To prepare the lemongrass, start by removing the tough, dry leaves. About 1 or two layers. Next, trim about an inch from the bulb and slice the lemongrass thinly. Since lemongrass is very firm and fibrous, slicing it first will help make it easier to breakdown with a mortar and pestle or a food processor.
Pound the lemongrass and garlic in a mortar with a pestle for a few minutes. If you don’t have mortar and pestle, use a food processor.
In a bowl, add the lemongrass mixture and add the oyster sauce, sugar, and soy sauce. I prefer Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce over soy sauce for this recipe.
Add the lamb chops to the marinade and allow it marinate for at least 30 mins.
Preheat your grill to high. Grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes before serving. And you’re done!
