Australian Lamb and Wine, No Better Way to Dine!

What is the best way to showcase Australian wines? 


Grilled baby lamb chops with garlic and mustard


Elegant, romantic and makes an impressive presentation.


Grilled Lamb Chops with Garlic and Mustard
Serves 4
Recipe from Bobby Flay

Ingredients:
1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons Spanish paprika
Coarsely ground black pepper
12 ( 3-ounce) baby lamb chops, frenched
Kosher salt

Directions:
1.  Heat your grill to high.

2.  Whisk together both the mustards, the garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, honey, thyme, paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.  Pour half of the mixture into a second bowl and set aside for serving.

3.   Season the chops on both sides with salt.  Brush each chop with some of the mustard mixture and place on the grill, mustard side down.  Grill until golden brown and slightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes.  Flip the chops over, brush with more of the mustard mixture, and continue grilling to medium-rare, 2 to 3 minutes longer.

4.  Remove from the grill, brush with the reserved glaze, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

This looks great, Velva. Not a sauce combination that I would have thought of for lamb, but I bet it was awesome. There's a restaurant in Halifax that serves something like this that they call lamb lollipops, which always makes me smile.

I am always so jealous of your dinner guests! The lamb (and the wine) look wonderful.

My husband would love this recipe... I would love the wine! LOL! I have never been able to cook lamb and want to eat it...there is something about the smell. I don't know if I am doing something wrong, or if I will just never like the smell of cooking lamb. =/ Looks beautiful though!!

Could you decant a bottle of Shiraz for me? :-) Love these lambs with some of Austrian Shiraz.

Jen_from_NJ said...

Oh yes, grilled lamb chops with mustard and garlic - perfect with the wine. I would love to come for dinner.

From the Kitchen said...

Thanks--my husband needs this recipe. At the beginning of summer, he announced that he was going to expand his grilling repertoire. So far, there hasn't been a fire in the grill?? Not to complain (too much), he has been preparing some delicious meals indoors from time to time.

Best,
Bonnie

I totally want to pick up a few of those lamb chops, then lick the deliciousness from my fingers and wash it all down with some wine...YUM! Looks amazing, Velva =)

Lamb is one of our very favorites. Yours looks gorgeous Velva.

Katerina said...

These lamb chops look really juicy!

Bob said...

I want those right now, for breakfast. With wine. ;)

Laura in Paris said...

I love Australian lamb because I like the stronger flavor it has as comared to French lamb. Sometimes I indulge into buying a frozen Australian lamb leg (and try to forget my carbon print!!)

scrambledhenfruit said...

Though I'm not generally a fan of lamb, these are making my mouth water! Beautiful!

Mimi said...

What a nice way to enjoy some Australian wines!

Yum! Even for someone who doesn't usually eat lamb, these look fantastic!

cookbookapprentice said...

What a nice recipe. I haven't had lamb chops in years...

intuitive eggplant said...

Elegant and delicious. I often bake lamb (one of my favorites!) with similar ingredients, although had not thought of using soy sauce (even though I use it frequently in beef marinade). Thanks for the tip, and for sharing this great dish!

Ana Powell said...

We would love this recipe for sure.
Great dish ♥

You're making me crazy just thinking about it!

All Our Fingers in the Pie said...

I just bought some Australian lamb at Costco! I'll have to try this recipe.

Eliana said...

Impressive indeed. Looks so delicious too.

Dishesdone said...

The lamb chops look fantastic!

Nicole and I will be right over... We love lamb, it's what beef wants to be when it grows up! Not that I have anything against cows.....

Kim said...

Oh Velva.....can I come over for dinner? Lamb chops are so succulent and I bet they were beyond fantastic with the mustard and garlic:)

Pierce said...

We are big fans of the lamb - roasted, grilled...you name it! Costco had some nice looking lamb chops the other day, so thanks for this idea!

The Japanese Redneck said...

YUM, that is amazing looking. I can see my hubby knawing the bones!

Susi said...

These lamb chops look simply incredible! Boy I would love to have some right now! I will have to keep an eye out for lamb to cook this! Thanks for sharing :o)

Claudia said...

I love the mustard and soy in this. I have some tender lamb chops awaiting the grill. You came just in time! Hope you are recuperated from France!

Chef E said...

You know I would come in to your restaurant on Lamb and Australia Wine night each week!

Fimère said...

un pur régal tes côtelettes grillées à l'ail et la moutarde, j'adore
bonne soirée

Cathy said...

What a delicious glaze for those lovely lamb chops.

Stella said...

Oh Velva, this looks wonderful. I love lamb chops, but rarely have them. I wish I were there-yum! Plus, mustard is so good with lamb...

Raina said...

Oooh! Sounds so darn good. Amazing sauce..cannot wait to try:)

A Feast for the Eyes said...

We both cooked lamb! Somehow my airline ticket and invitation got lost in the mail. Do you still want my address? Rock on!

Chef Dennis said...

my boss loves lamb chops!! I am going to have to make those for her when we get back to school, your chops look amazing!!

Jhonny walker said...

Velva...what a looker you have here. I don't eat lamb...but bet these would be yummy on drimsticks too...but if I were to have lamb...these would be the ones I will go for. Fantastic!

We Are Not Martha said...

Wow, these are beautiful!! I've still never cooked lamb (it intimidates me for some reason??), but this might encourage me to!

Sues

teresa said...

impressive indeed! oh my goodness, i wish i could reach through the screen and grab one. excellent way to use that wonderful wine!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

What a perfect combo - Australian lamb and wine! I love grilled lamb rack or lamb chops with lots of good seasonings. This is going directly into my recipes to try!

Chris said...

I was just looking at a somewhat similar recipe from Steve Raichlen tonight, what a coincidence! I'm not a big lamb eater (usually only gyros) but your post has me wanting to make some this week. Nice post, V!

grace said...

that marinade sounds FANTASTIC! sadly, i've never eaten lamb, but if it pairs with mustard anywhere near as well as other red meats, i'd absolutely love your dish!

LaDivaCucina said...

Darling Velva, this is a typical Sunday dinner for Aussies! Lamb and a nice Shiraz or Cab Sav!! YUMMO! I wish we could get other cuts of lamb in the U.S. like the backstrap (like pork tenderloin but lamb!) I've only seen Aussie lamb here, I've never seen French or even locally raised lamb. Again: YUMMO and well done!

Fresh Local and Best said...

The lamb looks fab, but you've posted some of my favorite wines in the world! I LOVE Mollydooker! LOVE LOVE them, and I can't think of anything better to pair their wonderful Boxer wine than with a fabulous rack of lamb.

Salsa Verde said...

What an amazing combination of flavours!!

These were great. I was inspired last week after reading your post and stopped at the local store grabbed some frenched lamb, cut into individual chops and had all of the other ingredients at home. We loved this dish. It was really easy to make and a little fancy for a week day dinner. Thanks.
