Tonite we have:

Dijon and fine herbs roasted Colorado rack of lamb, toasted Israeli cous cous, streamed brussel sprouts and a marsala and dried porcini jus. MAC 11, SA 1911, GLOCK 19, and the Bushmaster. I left the "other essentials" out of the pic.


I over-cooked the lamb a bit (as I was running around f@cking with the camera), but it was juicy and very flavorful because I allowed it to rest properly

I'd eat at your place any day...



I'm just over the hill, and I'm taking the next 2 months off... come on over!!!!

BTW the Sierra Nevada was to wash it all down with, the Patron for sipping.

What's the price per lb of Colorado racks? The best I can find in Houston is New Zealand lamb at about $12 per at Sams' Club.

BTW any Houstonians checking out this thread. Off the menu special in the bar only at Galleria Pappas Yia Yia Mary's Greek restaurant happy hour special is 3 orders of 5 lamb chops for $13.95. Cheaper than cooking it yourself.

Depending on the purveyor it's about $12/ lb. IMHO it's much better quality and has far superior flavor over the NZ stuff. I buy the racks with the fat cap intact, and use the scrap for sauces/ sausages/ etc.

...........PATRON. Any naysayer in light of the fine alcohol, including negatives in any post is made by peterpumpers.

Outstanding dinner pic. Throw away the cork, and get on with it.

Staplers and tape measures are very dangerous while drinking Patron. Dilettantes!!!

Oh nice. I love it.
The chef at work coates them in dijion mustard and then rolls them in bread crumbs. Thats nice but it can overpower the natural flavor of the meat. Did you season them at all?

Good job, now I'm hungry again.

By G*d man, of course I seasoned the chops. I seasoned with Kosher salt and fresh ground black Malabar pepper prior to searing. Then I heated my pan, added a small amount of fat, seared the fuckers till well caramelized, flipped and seasoned again, then remove from heat and coat with a little Dijon and fresh chopped herbs, roast till MR. Allow to rest, slice carefully to avoid the chine bones, plate and season the eye with some nice fleur de sel (sea salt). Sauce the plate and serve!!
