Ingredients List for the Kosher Persian Lamb
- 4 Prairie Street Prime Kosher USDA Double Cut Lamb Rib Chops
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint, minced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Kosher salt
Ingredients List for Fennel and Citrus Salad
- 1 cup fennel, shaved
- 1 orange, peeled and supremed
- 1 grapefruit, peeled and sliced in rounds
- 1 celery heart, sliced thinly on the bias
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chiffonaud
- ½ cup green olives, whole or sliced
To Prepare the Kosher Braised Brisket
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Begin to prepare the marinade by grinding your clove of garlic into a paste using your knife and some coarse Kosher salt. In a small mixing bowl combine your garlic paste with honey, balsamic vinegar, and mint.
On your double cut lamb rib chops grind a generous amount of fresh pepper and then coat with the marinade. Allow to marinade anywhere from 1 hour to overnight in the refrigerator.
After the lamb has marinated, gently dab any extra moisture off.
Heat a large skillet on a medium to high heat and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Sear each of your double cut lamb rib chops for about 1 minute on each side to form a nice crust.
Transfer the skilled into a preheated 350F oven for about 5-7 minutes.
Remove from the oven. For a medium to rare chop you’ll want the internal temperature of your lamb to read between 125F and 135F. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes on a clean cutting board.
Serve either whole or sliced into single chops atop the Fennel and Citrus Salad with a drizzle of the jus from the skillet.
To Prepare the Fennel and Citrus Salad
In a medium to large bowl, combine your shaved fennel, orange segments, grapefruit slices, celery hearts slices, fresh mint, and green olives.
As part of your dressing, squeeze the remaining juice from the orange over the salad, drizzle extra virgin olive oil, and lightly season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Mix, set and serve.
