The burning question every time the freezer door was opened zoomed towards me: what are you going to make from me and WHEN??? I was scared, people. Scared of vacuum sealed itty bitty pricey rib chops that I did not want to screw up and have to throw out because they tasted like, well, like little bits of sweat. All I saw when looking at them was Sheldon on "Big Bang Theory." (Fast forward to around minute 1:33 for a glimpse into my head.)
I searched and searched for recipes. I quizzed my friends. Yet the little buggers continued to frighten me. One lazy weekend morning, while watching some food shows and knitting happily, a yummy sounding recipe was shared for Asian Lollipop Lamb Chops. Sounded incredible, so it got printed out and set aside until I could work up my courage to give it a go.
What the heck took me so long???
Don't be afraid of the 3/4 CUP of fresh minced garlic in the marinade. It is all for the good!
And, when paired up with sesame noodles, well all I can say is this a'int no little bit of sweat tasting meat. We have a keeper here and I can proudly proclaim that I have now overcome my fear of lamb!
