The recipe I am sharing with you today will knock your socks off. And your guest’s! It is THAT good. And you know what the best part is? It takes just a few ingredients to make this deliciousness. If Barack Obama were coming over for a dinner, – I would serve these lamb chops with mashed potatoes and fresh salad. What would you serve???
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know how much I LOVE PESTO. I use it in soups, add it to salads and spread it on sandwiches… Don’t be surprised when I come up with pesto brownies and pesto cheesecake. It’s just a matter of time… So, it’s no surprise that I am grilling these lamb chops today with pesto.
Now let’s talk about the pomegranate sauce. I found the recipe for this sauce in a cooking magazine about 2 years ago. My husband was shopping for light bulbs at Lowe’s and I was waiting for him in outdoor furniture section, reading cooking magazines and chilling on one of those outdoor swinging benches. I wish I could give credit to the person who came up with this sauce recipe. It is incredible! It pairs great with meat and even with some desserts. Pomegranates are in season now, so don’t skip this sauce.
And lastly, let me share a few tips on how to make sure you will enjoy the lamb chops as much as we did.
- Don’t forget to bring the lamb chops to room temperature before grilling. It takes about 20-30 minutes.
- Don’t move the lamb chops around while they are searing. Wait for 2-3 minutes and then flip.
- If you notice some blood coming out of the bones during searing (it happens sometimes), just cover the lamb chops with a lid and keep the lid on for 1-2 minutes.
OK, let’s start cooking!
