Family Dining During The Holidays
For a holiday meal for my family, I generally don’t go overboard. There’s no need since there’s only 2 adults and 2 little picky eaters. Larger families may prepare turkey or ham or a whole chicken, but this does not work for my household at the moment. I did however, prepare some things for the first time. As always, I cook with faith, hoping that the meal will turn out great.
Success strikes again! I made Lamb Loin Chops – freestyle. Plus Buttermilk Chicken and my husbands favourite lasagna. I’m sharing the recipe for the Lamb today because it is so simple and the lamb chops were so elegant.
|Rosemary Thyme Lamb Chops||
- 8 pieces Lamb Loin Chops
- 2 Tsp Fresh Rosemary, chopped
- 2 Tsp Dried Thyme
- 2 Cloves Garlic, cut in half
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 2 Tsp All Purpose Seasoning
- Olive Oil for Searing
- 1/4 Cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth
- Season Lamb on both sides with Salt, Pepper, Rosemary, Thyme and All Purpose Seasoning. Set aside for about 20 minutes.
- In a large dutch oven (or skillet), sautee garlic until oil is fragrant. Remove garlic and discard.
- Add lamb gently to the pot. Brown on both sides about 5 minutes per side.
- Reduce heat and add chicken broth.
- Cover and simmer for about 20-30 minutes until meat is soft and tender.
The lamb smelled wonderful as I browned them. I’m not sure how often I’ll be cooking lamb, but these pieces were very tender and flavourful.
And here was our holiday family dinner. Just for us Small. Simple. Made with love.
