For Valentine's Day I made SWMBO lamb chops since she loves them (and I love her!)
Marinated a rack of lamb with cumin, pepper, kosher salt, garlic, coriander, paprika, and EVOO. Let it all get friendly overnight in the fridge.
Fired up the egg with Stubbs lump. First cook with this lump and I really liked it. Plus it is half the price of WGWW.
First threw on some asparagus doused with a sesame/teriaki glaze. Used a rather unused fish grilling gizmo for this and it worked perfectly.
Next threw the rack of lamb on. Went a minute or so too long on the sear - I would have liked less char on the crust. Finished it raised direct, then onto a hot cast iron plate when IT was 125ish.
Homemade tzatziki sauce (Alton Brown's recipe):
Wife made roasted butternut squah, sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts. And yet another feeble attempt at a plated shot:
Dessert was made up on the fly (details in a separate thread - it was that good!). Chocolate pecan bourbon chocolate chip cakelets dressed with Kahlua:
It was a wonderful meal, and SWMBO said (again) that she was glad she married me :)
