By Golly, Lamb is good!!
I never had lamb before, but I figured if I was going to start raising some lamb and selling the meat, I better start learning to like it. Of course before you can learn to like it, you have to try it.
I never ate lamb before, nor do I cook. But I downloaded this quick easy grilling instructions for Lamb Ribs and I'll be darned if it was not good. My Grandmother LOVED it, and she claimed she hated lamb.
Funny how people like something when they think it is something else (she assumed it was beef ribs). Anyway if you have never tried lamb I would highly recommend it, at least with this recipe. For the record too, the lamb I bought was called Lamb Country Style Ribs and was bone-in at a cost of 3.99 a pound. With 6 ribs in the package it came to $5.02. I served it with macronni salad and a side salad.
Grilled Lamb with Brown Sugar Glaze
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons dried tarragon
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 lamb chops
In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, ginger, tarragon, cinnamon, pepper, garlic powder, and salt. Rub lamb chops with the seasonings, and place on a plate. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat grill for high heat.
Brush grill grate lightly with oil, and arrange lamb chops on grill. Cook 5 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
