The best mint sauce, bar none, is this with lamb. Not to be confused with mint jelly, or even homemade. Cross and Blackwell is just nasty. This is worth the price, no doubt.

I have always had good luck ordering lamb chops in Greek restos.

My opinion is like most. If cooked more than medium, they become something mediocre..they should be medium rare so they remain moist, juicy while retaining a great texture.

I don't think you should say that till you've tried the roasted garlic-mint pan sauce I had the other night

You'll probably have to order it Caslon, unless you have a British specialty shop around. It really is very special indeed, with a perfect balance of flavor.

I was interested in that sauce you were served GG. It really sounds good.

I've never gotten into mint want lamb. Probably because I tried that green jelly stuff they sell. I'm happy with a herb crusted rack and a knife and fork.

I love lamb chops. If Cooked right they are the best. Having said that my DW and I went to a fancy restaurant. Kids were nice enough to let us go by ourselves. I asked the waiter about it and he promised me the world. What I got was super fat not cooked right, etc. Good thing it was really fancy place they took it back no questions asked. On the other hand I've been to some whole in. Wall place with dirty tables and half drunk waiter, but lamb chops were to die for. I had to order second portion even though it was not small. I totally over ate, but it was fantastic.

I'm the same way, Andy. I don't mind mint in certain foods, but don't care for it with meat, including lamb.

Lamb chops I like to eat naked (the lamb chops, not me! )

Roast leg of lamb I like to serve with a rosemary cream sauce.

Having said that, I usually put some sort of mint sauce out for guests because a lot of people do seem to like it.

Steve, I don't get to eat lamb as often as I'd like. SO dislikes it. Both daughters are OK with it but SIL won't touch it. So this weekend for our 4th of July cookout, I'm making beef souvlaki rather than lamb or pork because it's the "safe" alternative.

How Should Lamb Chops be Cooked? We skipped going to the Bacon Fest and went and had dinner at a place that we had never been to before. BIG MISTAKE.:ohmy: First off I think some Yelp reviewers are liars. I would only have rated the place a 1, and that's just because I'm nice.They gave the place almost 5 stars.. Seriously? That being said. I went out of my comfort zone and ordered what should have been Lamb chops. It was the Special on the dinner menu. They were chopped alright. Never having it before I'm suspecting they over cooked it. Is Ketchup supposed to accompany it? I thought mint jelly was the rule. It was tough as nails. dry as dust, flavorless. S&P was the only seasoning. Is that the way it should have been cooked? Hubby and I traded plates. He's such a gentleman. :flowers: Ummm, the fish and chips that he ordered wasn't Cod as the menu said it was supposed to be. Rubber bands was more like it. Our dogs loved it. They would.:rolleyes: 3 stars 1 reviews
