LAMB CHOPS WITH CHIANTI VINAIGRETTE


This recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis from Everyday Italian at Food Network. This is my second times making it and it always the best meal of all. I love lamb chop especially when they are from New Zealand...well..I don't know why!!! So...all my friends who loves lamb chops, do give it a try of this special recipe from my favorite chef at Food Network.


INGREDIENTS :


4 to 6 lamb chops (I used New Zealand lamb chop)
2 cups Chianti wine
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 tsp kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning



METHODS :

1. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Grill until caramel-colored grill marks appear, and an instant-read meat thermometer registers 125 degrees F. for medium-rare, about 5 to 7 minutes per side, depending on thickness.

2. Meanwhile, place the wine in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil gently until reduced to 1 cup, about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat. Whisk in the honey until dissolved. Add the extra-virgin olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine.


3. Serve the lamb chops on a platter with a serving bowl of the Chianti vinaigrette alongside for drizzling over the meat.
