There is nothing quite like the delicious flavors of lamb chops. To get that great flavor, you need to prepare them the right way and have the perfect seasoning that brings out all of that unleashed flavor within the meat.
Preparing lamb chops requires quality meat, the right process, and great seasoning, and there is a way for you to get that in your own home as if you were your own personal chef with the skills of a great cook.
How can you do it? Simple: with the right recipe, the right ingredients, and a lamb chop rub that delivers an added flavor that fits perfectly with lamb and all of its natural flavors.
Today, we will show you two great ways to use lamb chop rub on both lamb and pork.
Starting any lamb dish requires you to have quality lamb meat that doesn’t have too much of a gamey smell or flavor right out of the packaging. If you can tell that from the packaging, you will certainly recognize it when you eat it. It is essential that you use a good product when preparing a lamb dish.
Start by preheating the grill to high heat and prepare the chops away from the grill to start. Place them on a cookie sheet and sprinkle each side of the lamb with both salt and our Good Shepherd™ seasoning. Let the chops sit for a few minutes so the rub adheres to the meat, then transfer them to the grill for cooking.
When the chops are on the grill, sprinkle more Good Shepherd™ seasoning on the meat and close the lid for two minutes to let cook. After two minutes or when you see grill marks, you can flip the meat and repeat the same steps on the opposite side, adding more seasoning to the meat and letting cook until grill marks appear.
Once that happens, remove from the grill, set the lamb chops up on a platter and serve.
You may be wondering what a lamb chop rub has to do with pork chops. Well, here at Casa M Spice Co™, we like to experiment and bring versatility into the kitchen. Just because Good Shepherd™ is our lamb dry rub made for lamb chops doesn’t mean it can’t be used on other dishes and different types of meat.
How about making pork chops with a lamb spice rub?
Pork chops can taste especially good when prepared in a smoker, but if you don’t have one, the grill will work for this recipe.
The process starts similarly to the lamb chops. Preheat the smoker to 160 degrees and prepare the chops away from the smoker, adding salt and the Good Shepherd™ seasoning to the surface of the meat and letting it sit so that it adheres to the meat.
Once that is done and your smoker is heating, place the chops into the smoker for 60 to 90 minutes and let them bathe in the smoke until the internal temperature is about 100 to 110 degrees.
Have your grill preheated to medium heat and move the chops to the grill, adding more Good Shepherd™ seasoning. Let each side cook for 5 to 10 minutes and reach an internal temperature that is at least 150 degrees but does not exceed 160 degrees. When it reaches this temperature, you can remove the chops from the grill, let sit for 10 minutes, and serve.
When it comes to meat, it’s all about flavor for us, and that’s why we are willing to try anything and everything to give you the best flavors possible. Our Good Shepherd™ seasoning can work on any meat, and we hope you will give it a try on your other dishes like pork chops or maybe even chicken or beef.
