3 O'Clock in the afternoon on a Saturday and my Honey gets a craving for my spicy lamb chops. Great! Only one problem. In the middle of this cornfield in PA where we live, it's hard to find fresh lamb chops on short notice. If you want it fresh, you order it ahead... otherwise all that the butchers around here have on hand is frozen. So, what to do? I start thinking about it and decide that maybe the seasonings for my lamb chops would be tasty on pork chops? I ask the Honey if it sounds good to him, and it does, so I try it. And delicious and wonderful and divine it was! In fact... I've made pork chops this way a couple of times since. It's *that* good. I even served it with the creamy cucumber sauce I normally would serve with the lamb chops and it worked really well together. Yummy in the tummy :) Ingredients: 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint 4 large garlic cloves, minced 2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Lamb Loin Chops or Center Cut Pork Chops Fresh mint sprigs Method: Place olive oil, chopped fresh mint, minced garlic, salt, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in small bowl; mix well. Spread herb mixture over both sides of chops. Let stand 20 minutes. Grill or broil chops to desired taste.
