Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Lemony Thyme, Garlic, Panko, Olive Oil, Sea Salt & Fresh Cracked Pepper (according to taste) Encrusted Petite Lamb Chop with Balsamic Glaze & Crispy Leeks. Can you say melt in your mouth goodness.
The herbs gave this simply pan seared, then oven roasted chop, amazing layers of flavors. Flash fried thinly sliced leeks added the right crunch and contrast. And a bit of balsamic glaze gave the right finish. We made this as an appetizer but would definitely add an extra chop and a side and declare it’s What’s for Dinner!
