Lamb chop marinate

17 Aug

I know I said that I will upload the recipe after trying the food to see if it was good and worth sharing but I guess I couldn’t wait! Also, I sort of have short-term memory so if I don’t write it out, I will forget what I threw into the marinate!

S and I went grocery shopping last night and we combed two supermarkets high and low but we couldn’t find any fresh rosemary – which would go so well with lamb. I found a substitute however: fresh thyme, and modified my recipe a little to accommodate the change.

We raced home to dump everything in the fridge and quickly left for a meeting in church so I could only work on the marinate after we returned from the meeting. S was dead tired by then but he accompanied me in the kitchen when I was doing this and even helped with thawing the lamb chops out a bit (:

It’s actually really very easy to put the things together – all you need is thyme, olive oil, garlic, lemon, black coarse pepper and salt! Then you mix it together and liberally apply it all over the lamb, and put it back in the refrigerator for well, some people say an hour will do. Others say 6 hours is ideal, and others say overnight. I chose the option that was most practical (overnight) because I’m working all day today and won’t have time tonight to leave the meat to absorb the marinate before cooking. S will probably be a red-eyed hungry monster if I did that, haha.

Equipment you need
A big bowl
Spoons
Sharp knife
Chopping board

Ingredients you need
3 tbsps olive oil
Juice from half a lemon
5 sprigs of thyme finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
Black pepper and salt (to taste)

Steps
1 Remove thyme leaves from the stalk and chop the leaves. Put into bowl.
2 Chop the garlic and slice a lemon and squeeze the juice out. Put into bowl too.
3 Throw in the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix.
4 Liberally apply marinate all over the lamb chops and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
