Mustard Honey Lamb Chops

Today, my eldest son had decided to demostrate his "skill" in cooking these lamb chops for our dinner. We were rather skeptical as he is not known to be a patient man and usually did short cuts when it comes to food preparation. Therefore, we were surprised when he said he's going to cook us this dish from scratch, from the sauce preparation and presenting it on a plate for photography!
Marinated with a combination of blended onions, mustard sauce, worcestershire sauce, honey,  black pepper and salt...

Ahh! Nicely roasted for 45 minutes, and resting before cutting into sections for serving.

Cut into sections, plate and serve with buttered mashed potatoes, or if you prefer, some brocolli florets and carrots sticks. Have some crusty bread on the side to mop up the delicious sauce, which was just a simple homemade brown stock seasoned with black pepper.

Simple but really good I must say...meat's tender and not over cooked...would be perfect with a glass of red wine, but of course we can't have the boys drinking wine, can we? So we compromise by having a glass of ginseng root tea on the side, hehe~
Hope every one of you is having a wonderful weekend, cooking up a storm:D


  1. Wow, very impressive, you must of rubbed off on him well! It looks very tasty! I like how he even french cut the chops! Nice job!
