Adraki lamb chops with spiced potato mash


This was really great. The lamb was cooked in the oven, just a little more than medium rare. The chops were organic with a good amount of wholesome fat on them. Also now that I have found a lactose free yogurt I could also enjoy this within the recipe as well.

    Looks delicious. I would like to try it sometime. A question though. Where did you source the Maris Piper potatoes? I’m in Ontario and would like to find a source for them or King edwards.

    Thanks for the recipe. Cheers

    I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of house . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this site. Studying this information So i’m glad to convey that I have an incredibly good uncanny feeling I came upon exactly what I needed. I so much for sure will make sure to do not overlook this website and give it a glance on a constant basis.

    Younger lambs are smaller and more tender. Mutton is meat from a sheep over two years old, and has less tender flesh. In general, the darker the colour, the older the animal. Baby lamb meat will be pale pink, while regular lamb is pinkish-red.’:-”
