I am quite vocal about how lamb is my favourite meat, I love it! Here, my butcher hooked me up with fantastic cutlets and we simply cooked them on the braai (BBQ). Lamb and rosemary go so well together, so I made a quick flavoured butter beforehand to melt on top and #PimpMyChops. And, since its the Bank Holiday weekend coming up here in the UK, why not enjoy these with my Tear-and-Share Keto Garlic Bread and a lovely salad on the side.
Start with the rosemary butter. Remove the leaves from the rosemary sprigs and chop very finely.
Add the softened butter to a small bowl and tip in the chopped rosemary. Use a garlic press to crush the garlic cloves into the bowl. (NOTE: I used a garlic press here to ensure I only yielded the lovely inner garlic flesh. Discard the bits left in the press between crushing each clove.)
Season the butter with salt and combine well before tipping out onto a sheet of cling film.
Roll the butter in the cling film to form an even-sized 'log', approximately 3cm / 1" in diameter (you will be slicing them into 12 discs later, so estimate with a little logic here). Twist the ends and place in the fridge to set firm for at least 40 minutes.
To cook, prepare your braai (BBQ). Once the coals are ready, cook the 12 lamb chops as you normally would on the grill, turning occasionally until done to your liking.
Just before the lamb chops are done, remove the log of butter from the fridge, unwrap the cling film and slice into 12 even-sized discs.
Place a disc of butter onto each chop and allow to melt a little. Season the chops with smoked sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
