NOTE : Post was written almost three months ago.
When I was growing up, my family never ate lamb. I don’t think it was until I was about 23 when I found a piece of lamb in the markdown bin at the local grocery store and bought it. If I recall, it was a blade chop. I put it on the grill and cooked it. When I ate it, I thought “This tastes funny”. Not the kind of “funny” that results in gastronomical distress, but just different “funny”. It didn’t taste bad, but it was definitely something that you had to want/like to eat. (Same as goat !!) My wife’s family is Armenian, and in the past 25 years, we’ve eaten lamb chops with them a couple times every year.
What’s the apple corer out for ???
Hollowed out potatoes.
NEW !! “Po-Tat-O’s”
A little olive oil and sea salt on the spuds and a Masala sauce (from a bottle) on the lamb shanks.
I was surprised with how much meat there was on the shank. I thought there was much more bone in them.
I know that lamb chops and leg of lamb can be cooked “rare”, but since I was not sure about the shanks, I cooked them for about 40 minutes.
This dish turned out quite fantastic !!!
Now, I am going to have to finally try cooking a leg of lamb !!
