Lamb Chops with Asian BBQ sauce
Here is one of my go-to dishes that my picky eater loves every single time I make it!
In a bowl, I mix 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey or brown sugar, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon Chinese 5-spice powder, a couple of grinds of the peppermill.
Mix this all up, take your French cut chops and line them in a shallow baking dish, such as Rachael’s Bubble and Brown dishes (see above). Pour the sauce over the chops and make sure they get covered on the front and back. Let them sit in the sauce for an hour. They can sit out on the counter, but if it will be more than an hour, let them sit in the fridge and pull them out a half an hour before you plan to cook them.
Fire up the grill or the broiler and cook these babies on high heat for 2-3 minutes per side. They will char on the outside and should be medium rare on the inside. Let them cool for about 5 minutes or so before serving, but once you serve them, watch your kids pick them up by the bone “handle” and gnaw away. My kids, at least, love this dish! it’s so tender and flavorful-yum!
Lamb chops are expensive so in our house, this dish is a real treat. However, there is no reason you couldn’t use this Asian-inspired BBQ sauce on chicken or pork chops. You’ll just have to cook the meat a little longer, depending on the cut and whether or not there is a bold.
