I haven’t always been the biggest fan of lamb but after a trip to the Kendal Calling festival with Try Lamb, I have definitely been converted. After hearing all the amazing ways to have lamb, I was keen to experiment and try new recipes. After experimenting, I came up with my own recipe with a marinade mixture which tasted so lovely that I don’t even understand why I ever went through a phase without lamb!

Health benefits of Lamb:

As you probably already know, not only is high-quality lamb packed with flavours but it is also full of vitamins such as B12, iron, zinc and is a great source of protein in your diet. Lamb chops, in particular, make a great addition to any main course when served with rice, vegetables or even just salad but they are also perfect starters for any barbeque parties you have coming up!

The £10 or less challenge!

Try Lamb have challenged me to create a recipe that is affordable and under £10 ahead of their Love Lamb week (1st-7th September)… challenge accepted! Not only is this recipe completely affordable with the lamb chops costing ONLY £3.85, but it is super tasty, healthy and easy to make. I always was under the misconception that lamb was expensive, but I was definitely surprised after going to the supermarket and seeing the price.

I had so much fun creating this recipe and learned that lamb does not always need to be slow-cooked but can actually be super convenient and east to pan grill for no more than 30 minutes. I have completed the challenge so now it is your turn!
