The weather has been, umm, especially crappy recently. It has been cold and rainy and I just wanted something different.
Bah Bah Blackberry Sauce over Lamb Chops (Pan Seared Lamb Chops with Blackberry Sauce)
Ingredients for Lamb:
2 lamb chops
2 cloves of garlic (smashed and diced)
3 tablespoons of butter
1/2 of a shallot (finely chopped)
Ingredients for Sauce:
1 cup of blackberries
2/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
2 tsp of fresh lemon juice
1 tsp of whole pepper corns
a few twists for fresh ground pepper.
2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Directions for SAUCE:
First, add all of the ingredients in a sauce pan and let it reduce until it coats the back of a spoon.
Then, strain the sauce and press all the solid objects against the strainer as to get all the good juices out.
Throw out the solids and set aside.
Directions for Pan Seared Lamb Chops:
First, preheat the oven to 400.
In a bowl, add olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, parsley, and garlic - give it a good whisking.
Rub the lamb chops with a little salt and pepper. Then, in an oven safe skillet over medium high heat, add some olive oil (a little bit) and cook until they are golden brown on each side -- about three minutes per side.
