Well, this is not exactly a recipe. Just how I cook lamb chops. I am really appreciating lamb these days.
I got these recently from Feast Market.
I know I am spending a lot on food. But when I think of it in terms of an "investment" in my health and well being, I think it is not unreasonable to do so.
If I am in poor health and something serious happens to me, I would be spending thousands, if not hundreds of thousand in medical fees. Although I have medical insurance, medication and after care costs can also be astounding.
So, I would rather spend forward on good nutrition rather than give my money to the hospital.
Behold my new Lodge cast iron pan. I got it from ETC and I am going to use this pan for cooking and searing. Of course a non-stick pan is a lot more convenient because it is easy to clean. However, after some time the non-stick coating get worn out and can be toxic.
The lamb chops were simply seasoned with salt and then pan fried. I do 3 minutes per side and an additional 1 minute per side after flipping. Then I also sear the outer side for a minute or two.
I found some leftover bacon and added those to my meal. The lamb chops were tender and moist and since they are already so flavorful on their own, it is good enough to simply season with salt.
Tomorrow I will pick up my blood test results. I did one at the end of April, right before I started this way of eating. I am interested in my inflammation marker (C-reactive protein) and triglyceride reading. For sure my cholesterol level will be high but I'd like to see my HDL/LDL ratio.
