If you like animals, you’ll love LAMB!
First-apologies for the delay between posts. Baby takes preference! And now he’s almost a month old, his noms are more important than mine! Although his are pretty much the same all the time.(Milk, milk and more milk).
During the weekly shop, I was really on the lookout for something a little different. And of late lamb has been ludicrously expensive. Still like everything else, we export the good stuff.
However, Pak n Slave has a $6 meat section, which sometimes throws up some good ‘uns. Usually its Chicken Maryland, or some chicken wings. But this week was different. LAMB. Ok, it’s just chops, but four of them for SIX BUCKS. 400 grams of meaty, slighty fatty goodness.
Now, With baby in the house, I have been told to cut down on the amounts of garlic/hot sauce/chili etc. Apparently bubs doesn’t like it and I’m a fan of sleeping.
So’s I head to the cupboard, and in a fury of chopping/hunting/gathering-make this!
A cacophony of stock/leeks/onions/mint with a little help from Mr Worcester, red wine vinegar(to help cut through the fatty/salty) and some soy for colour.
Now this potion needs some meat. So I brown off those suckers-note my new cast Iron Pan. Thanks sale at Briscoes!
Once they got a bit of a tan goin, into the potion they went, then into a slow oven at 160 degrees.
Now…I need something else. Spuds are good. and boring. And related to Deadly Nightshade apparently. So I need a beer first.
Then, its came to me. FREAKING HASSELBACK POTATOES. Peeled, sliced and into the oven tray.
Now, time to relax while these cook. In the meantime, here’s yet another cat pic.
Now, I know some people are dirty pervs so here’s an action shot
So this went on for a while, until this!
Not too much work, for a really hearty and nice wintery meal. And to be honest I went back twice for more of that oniony/leek gravy goodness. I think I might just make some of that to have with chips one day.
Til next time….
