  1. Grilled Lamb Chops with Blackberry Relish

    I know, I Know I'm from East Texas and we don't eat Lamb, but sometimes I just get a hankering. 

    I am the only one around here that likes Lamb. My Wife is going to be gone for a couple of days, so what better time than to fire up the ole grill and do some Lamb Chops.

    I went looking online at some different recipes instead of the same ole same ole.

    I found a couple and combined them and thought I would give it a try.

    Went ahead and made my relish this morning and letting it sit, Mmmm this stuff is good stuff !!

    Mixed up my wet rub so the flavors can really come together

    Pulled Chop out of the Fridge, basted both sides with the wet rub, going to let the sit on the counter for about 20 or 30 min. In the meantime tossing a little Okra with EVOO and S&P to go on the grill as well.

    Grill is Hot, Okra going on, then the Lamb Chops

    I took a few pics, but forgot the one with the Chops on the grill sorry.

    Here are the recipe’s I used


    ·         1 cup blackberries  (I used 1 cup of Blackberry Preserves omit sugar)

    ·         1 tablespoons sugar

    ·         1/2 tablespoon chopped mint

    ·         1/2 tablespoon drained prepared horseradish

    ·         1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

    ·         1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

    ·         Salt and freshly ground pepper

    In a medium saucepan, cook the blackberries with the sugar over moderately high heat until they are softened but still hold their shape, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the mint, horseradish, lime juice and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and let cool.

    LAMB CHOPS 4 to 6


    2 large garlic cloves, crushed
    1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    Coarse sea salt
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

    In a food processor add the garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne, and salt. Pulse until combined. Pour in olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops and let them marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and allow the chops to come to room temperature; it will take about 20 minutes.

    Grill to desired doneness.

    Thanks for Looking

    Looks delicious Gary!

    We like lamb a lot around here.

    Will definitely try your recipe!


  5. Thanks Guys,  Lamb is not real popular here in East Texas and its pricey.

    It turned out really good I liked all the flavors. and if you haven't tried grilled Okra, and if you like it you are in for a treat.

    You might want to do what I did.  Buy a lamb from one of the local FFA kids and have it slaughtered.  Helps the kids AND you get the meat :D

    Looks great Gary.  Miss Linda has never had lamb.  I like it, but around here it makes even beef look cheap.  That blackberry relish looks fantastic--love blackberries, but they just won't grow here.  I'll have to buy some to try that.  I'm betting that relish will be  great with more than just lamb.

    Now I know this is probably sacrilege to a Texas boy, but I did try okra-----once.     [​IMG]

    All in all, looks like a really great meal


  13. Thanks Gary, Same around here  Pricy   Thanks for the points
