Lamb Loin Chops ala Angie

In the last week we have enjoyed incredible South African Lamb. It has to be some of the most flavorsome and meltingly tender lamb available in the world! I think the only comparable lamb is found in countries like Greece and Turkey where the animals get to graze a lot of natural and aromatic herbs like wild sage.
My wife Angie, cooked such a simple, delicious meal of lamb chops last night, that I am inspired to record it here, as well as the barbecued version I did over the last weekend.

All she did was place them in the oven, close under the grill for 30 minutes. I detected a dash of freshly ground black pepper. She served it with Mashed Butternut squash and fried potato cubes and it was really awesome. It humbled me a little because it reminded me that sometimes we tend to "overwork" our herbs and flavors.
With the same batch of Lamb Loin Chops, I put together a barbecue, or braai as we call it here in Southern Africa.
Mt lamb chops were sprinkled with chopped rosemary, freshly ground black pepper and a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar. This was then braaied over medium coals (strictly no flame) for about 10 minutes each side. They were INCREDIBLE! We ate them by the fireside with freshly roasted sweetcorn. Just that.


  1. Oh yes - they both look so good, You're right, we do tend to overwork the additions to good food sometimes. Two great meals - I'm envious.

  2. Yep like I said. Felt embarrassed by its simplicity and unique flavors!

  3. Mmmm... I looove the look of these chops and the more simple they are the better the flavour is!

  4. IF the lamb is good! BIG if!! I was lucky..

    1. Was your lamb tender and fat? Because sometime organic meat is tronger than "processed one"? but it looks so delicious; Lamb is my favourite meat with chicken:

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

  7. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had
    a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a
    difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

  13. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
