BBQ Recipe - How To Make The Best Grilled Lamb Chops
Lamb by definition is: a young sheep that is less than one year old. The meat of a lamb is taken from the animal between one month and one year old, with a carcase (carcass in American English) weight of between 5.5 and 30 kilograms (12 and 65 lbs). This meat generally is more tender than that from older sheep and appears more often on tables in some Western countries. Many North Americans are not used to eating lamb, however it is a very popular dish in the middle east as well as the Mediterranean. Lamb is a rich and tender meat, and has a high fat content. Lamb is also a very popular dish in both New Zealand and Australia, with both countries being major exporters of lamb. Popular lamb dishes include: lamb kebab, roast lamb, lamb shish kabob, rack of lamb and lamb chops. Lamb is served with both rice and or potatoes, sometimes with greek salad. The drink of choice when eating lamb is red wine.
How To Make Grilled Lamb Chops
When cooking lamb chops on the barbecue, you want to make sure the grill is nice and hot. Lamb is best served medium rare, and should not be over cooked. Make sure the lamb has been completely covered in the marinade, and baste the lamb while grilling with the remaining marinade. If your grill is hot enough, it will only take 3-5 minutes per side to grill your lamb to perfection. When properly cooked, lamb will be far more tender and juicy than beef.
