Cooking Method For Lamb chops With Mustard And Citrus Glaze
Remove you lamb chops from the fridge and allow them enough time to come up to room temperature. Remove any wrapping and dry the meat with a cloth or kitchen towl.
Next prepare the glaze. Using a small bowl put in all the ingredients and mix together well.
Season the meat with salt and pepper then place the chops onto the grill pan or your prepared barbecue – light early so that the coals are very hot (white all over) before you start. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side This will vary according to the thickness of the individual pieces. Thicker chops will take longer.
During the last few minutes brush with the glaze. Remember that the marmalade has a high sugar content which can char to a not so tasty black very quickly, so keep a close eye on the last stages.
These Lamb chops with mustard and citrus glaze are great served with a mixed salad, pitta or other flatbread and some lemon wedges.
