Its become an often treat to have my 91 year old grandmother over for a weekend dinner. As picky and demanding as she can be (listen to this pot calling the kettle black haha) I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed special time with her as much. My kids love their great grammy so much and I hope that they will always cherish these special times until they fade into faint memories.
I went out of my comfort zone looking for something a little different for dinner. Apparently veal is hard to come by around here so lamb was the next choice.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt/Pepper to taste
First, I sprinkled salt and pepper on the chops. They actually took longer to cook than I expected, so I’d suggest throwing them on a grill pan now. I coated the pan with a little olive oil before tossing them on. Mine were thick so I just kept checking them.
Next, the kale went into a large pot with some olive oil. Have you ever noticed that it looks like you’re going to have a TON of greens but once it gets cooking you wonder where it went? Same here. Anyway, toss the kale around on medium heat until it softens. If you want, add a little balsamic to the kale. I didn’t, but I normally do and its very good that way.
Once the chops were finished I added some sliced tomato to the grill pan until they were slightly grilled.
Lastly, I made a balsamic reduction. I boiled 2/3c of balsamic vinegar and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. That was excellent on the lamb and tomatoes.
As you’ve noticed, I’m sure, my recipes are simple flavors and ingredients put together. I hope you all are enjoying this as much as I am!
