#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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
