Spiced Lamb Chop Loin With pomegranate and walnut herb salad
Courtesy: Chef Alyssa's Kitchen
8 to 12oz lamb loin chops 1 tsp ground star anise 1½ tsp cumin 1 tsp coriander ½ tsp garlic powder 2 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper Ghee (clarified butter) for cooking
Salad: ¼ cup pomegranate seeds ¼ cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped ½ cup mixed fresh herbs: mint, parsley, oregano, parsley Pinch of salt
Combine all spices and sprinkle over both sides of the lamb chops. Heat a sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Add about a tablespoon of ghee and, using tongs, place the chops in the pan. Cook about 2-3 minute on each side for medium-rare and more time for preferred doneness. Allow chops to rest for about 5 minutes to lock in the juices. Tear the fresh herbs to release the flavor then mix with the pomegranate and walnuts. Top the lamb loin with the salad and enjoy!
*The chops can be cooked on the grill as well. Serve with your favorite vegetable such as asparagus for a delicious Valentine's meal!
