#10Daysof Tailgate: Grilled Lemongrass Lamb


As this marathon tailgating event - #10DaysofTailgate - draws to a close, I decided to celebrate by handing off some lamb chops to my Grill Master and kicking up my feet with a cold beer in my hand! Works for me! And Jake was excited that he finally got to use his new ThermoPop from ThermoWorks.*


Ingredients makes 2
  • 2 lamb chops
  • 1 t lemongrass, recommended Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices
  • 1 T garlic, recommended Gourmet Garden
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • sesame oil for drizzling
  • 1 T fresh parsley

Procedure
Let meat come to room temperature. In the meantime, rub each lamb chop with 1/4 t lemongrass on each side and 1/4 T garlic on each side. Sprinkle with freshly ground salt, freshly ground pepper, and fresh parsley. Drizzle with sesame oil. Let meat stand while you heat the grill - at least 10 to 15 minutes.

Grill till desired doneness. For lamb, that meant (for medium well) 165°F; USDA recommends 170 °F. Thanks to the Thermopop...it was easy to do!


Speaking of the ThermoPop...
Let's be real: ThermoWorks sent me the ThermoPop for participating in this event, but it's not mine. As soon as I opened it, it was out of the box and secured in Jake's grill tools drawer. No joke. I had to dig it out, shove it back in the package to take a photo, and then put it back in his drawer.

Thank you, ThermoWorks, my husband loves your ThermoPop. And thanks, too, for sponsoring this event. I have a full product review scheduled in October along with another - bonus! - giveaway. Dear readers, enter the giveaway (below) to see if you can win a ThermoPop of your own!

  1. I love lamb unfortunately hubby doesn't so I only get it when we go out to dinner or on Easter when it is included among the 4 other meat dishes.
