Lamb lollipops

Mother's Day cook. Caliqueen requested lamb chops for dinner, in lieu of battling the masses for brunch, etc.

Started the day off with sourdough pancakes, with Cointreau and grapefruit zest in the batter. They did not suck. No pics, but it did happen :)

Trimmed up the rack, reserved the fat and bits of rib meat. SV at 131°F x 2 hrs, then chilled for 2 hrs or so. Rendered the fat a bit, and fried up thinly sliced garlic, cumin,  and cracked coriander in the lamb fat. Wilted a mess of baby spinach in all of that. I've posted the beet cauliflower puree before.  I could have composed a better shot, but it was time to eat!


Hope everyone, their moms,  and babymommas had a great Mother's Day.

    That looks incredible.  It's 8am on Monday morning and I'm drooling.  Damn you, @caliking!

    That looks great. The beet adds a nice color.

    Wow, that looks and sounds AMAZING!  Somehow the spinach in the lamb fat and seasonings especially made my mouth water.  Way cool!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    Forgot to add that the lamb was finished on the egg, direct, 550°F or so. Dusted with DO Raising the Steaks, with extra cracked coriander. Flipped a few times until the crust looked right.

    @SciAggie beets are in the regular rotation here, in different forms. Probably one of the few things we cook more for the aesthetics than the flavor. I love how their vivid color just pops on the plate.

    I was trying to be a responsible cook and not waste anything. Turns out that it was a good idea!
