Preparation Time: Cook Time:

Ingredients / serves 4

  • 4 forequarter lamb chops
  • Dry rub:
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 lime
  • Salad:
  • 1 tsp dry rub spice mix from above
  • 4 ripe Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Baby spinach
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt
  • 500 g sweet potato, peeled and cut into thin wedges

Method

1.
Place lamb forequarter chops on a plate or tray large enough to hold them in a single layer. Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced.
2.
Combine dry rub ingredients in a small bowl with the finely grated zest of the lime, reserve 1 tsp of the dry rub for the salad. Sprinkle both sides of the lamb with the remaining dry rub.
3.
Place sweet potato in a bowl with a little oil and toss to coat. Spread in a single layer in a large roasting tray or heavy baking tray and cook for 35 minutes until crisp at the edges.
4.
Preheat a BBQ or chargrill pan to medium hot, drizzle lamb with a little oil and sprinkle with a few salt flakes just before cooking.
5.
Combine ingredients for salad drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. Serve lamb with sweet potato, salad and yoghurt.

Essential Tips

  • 1. Lamb forequarter chops are from the shoulder and are sometimes sold as 'grilling’ or ‘BBQ’ chops.
  • 2. You can double or triple the spice rub recipe, minus the lime zest and place in a clean jar to use next time. Try using it on grilled vegetables or roast potatoes.
  • 3. Try with neck chops or chump chops.
