Serves 2-3 if two of the people are willing to share with the third person
Preheat oven to: BROIL Baby!
You will need:
2 lamb chops from a sustainably raised lamb or farm that slaughters lambs
1 medium sized red or sweet yellow onion
½ cup of tap water
2 TBSP of olive oil
1/2 cup Soy sauce or Bragg’s Amino Acids
1 TBSP Organic sugar
1 tsp Cumin (look in the spice section of your market)
1 tsp rosemary (also a spice)
3 cloves of garlic chopped (cloves are the small fragments that make up a bulb)
Black pepper (a pinch or 1/2 tsp will do)
9 inch baking dish or pan (something that fits under broiler and holds lamb)
good happy energy and lots of gratitude for the little lamb who spared his life
Ultimate Goal: to mix all of the ingredients above for a marinade & broiling.
PREP it UP! Making your marinade …
You have two tasks: chop the garlic cloves and then your onion in slices
1. Add all of the liquid ingredients first: soy sauce, olive oil and water to dish
2. Add the remaining ingredients: sugar, cumin, rosemary, pepper
3. Add the onion slices
4. Mix it up and make sure you coat the lamb chops thoroughly
5. Marinade in the lamb chops for at least one hour (over night is ideal)
It will take 16-18 minutes for the lamb to cook in total so plan accordingly. Your broiler should be hot! Place the oven-safe dish under the oven in the broiler.
REMEMBER: Clean up while you wait!
Cook 8-10 minutes on one side then 8-10 minutes on the other. Use a fork or tongs to flip. The time depends on how HOT your oven gets and the size of your lamb chops.
Be mindful because it’s HOT, use an oven mitt please ☺
Remove from oven and let cool a bit before slicing so that you keep the juices inside.
Serve with sticky sushi rice, or mash Yukon gold potatoes with green beans or Swiss chard.
