V-Day Dinner with PICS

Planned to cook on my salt block but it was cracked so I ditched the idea last minute. Cooked a rack of lamb, grilled polenta disks with crushed tomatoes, parmesan, and basil on top, and then finished it with white asparagus on the egg. Dessert was chocolate covered strawberries I made, but didn't get pics of those in time.

Started off 600 degrees for a 3 minute sear fat side down. Pulled and coated in dijon mustard and dipped in chopped rosemary, basil, bread crumbs, garlic, S&P. Lowered egg to 400 and finished raised direct with the sides.

Good dinner. Thanks for looking.

    Good call on the white asparagus. The sweetness would go well with the lamb. I'll need to try this.

    Your lamb looks terrific. I made a rack of lamb (first time on the egg) too, but yours looks better!

    Lamb is a little tougher to cook for sure. It is so awkward on the grill and needs to be cooked on all sides. I think the biggest thing is to get a good sear on the fatty side first. It was good though.

    Yeah, the white asparagus was a nice compliment to the meat. I tell you what, the polenta is a versatile side. Skeptical when my butcher told me to buy it in the tube. So easy though. Just slice into disks, coat in oil, and throw on grill. I think I am going to experiment with other easy quick items with it. Perhaps add a drop of tomato sauce, some cheese and a peppersoni. Mini pizza bites...

    Looks great! I wish anyone around here liked lamb, maybe I'll just cook it for myself sometime. I've got a tube of polenta that needs to be made, to the egg it goes! 

    Thanks for the good ideas.

    Solson, give the polenta a shot. I would suggest trying to sear on your CI swing grate. The texture is perfect for a quick grilling. Anything like a slow roast, it could fall apart. Good luck!

    Lamb looks great. Polenta isn't tough to make, but it would be more time consuming than the tube. I've never tried those.

    We eat the polenta in a tube all the time. Either a dab of tomatoe sauce and some mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and herbs. Quick easy and not too bad for you.

    Looks like you hit a homerun, Chubbs!  I've never tried polenta before.  I have to find it and give it a go.  I also like the idea of crusting the lamb with breadcrumbs.  I bet that was good!
