Sous Vide Lamb Chop Wraps

“When the only tool you have is a hammer, it is tempting to treat everything as if it were a nail.”
-Abraham Maslow

OK, OK, I’ve gone a little sous vide crazy lately… but can you blame me?  Perhaps the most revolutionary cooking method of our lifetimes has just poked its head into my kitchen.  It’ll take more than a few weeks and a handful of medium-rare proteins before I’m over it.

We all know that the sous vide method produces flawless (and dare I say, unparalleled) steak.  But, did you know that the same magic works on lamb?  It’s an amazing and, frankly, jolting experience to watch an incredibly tender lamb loin chop fall off the bone, only to reveal that the interior is a perfect medium-rare.  How can this be?  In order to get lamb tender enough to fall apart, you have to braise the hell out of it, right?  Wrong. That’s where sous vide comes in.  I cooked the lamb shanks at 54.5C – a precise medium rare – for 24 hours, until they were just barely clinging to the bone.  And since lamb is so flavorful and succulent on its own, a simple slice of pita bread, some feta cheese and toasted tomatoes were all that was needed to create a really memorable dinner.

Makes: 4 little lamb wraps
Total kitchen time: 15 minutes active, 24 hours cooking
Special equipment required: sous vide immersion circulator, blowtorch (optional), vacuum sealer

Shopping list:

  • 4 American lamb loin chops
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 pieces pita bread
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • 1 cup roasted tomatoes (available in finer grocery stores, substitute sun dried tomatoes)

 

  1. Heat your sous vide immersion circulator to 54.5C.
  2. Pat the lamb chops dry and coat liberally with kosher salt.  Sear all sides with a blowtorch until just browned.  If you don’t have a blowtorch (you should get one if you’re gonna be sous videing) preheat a skillet over very high heat.  Sear the lamb chops on all sides, just a few seconds per side.
  3. Place lamb chops in a vacuum sealer bag and seal.  Place in the water bath and cook 24 hours, up to 32 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, heat the pita slices for 30 seconds in the microwave.  Divide the Feta and tomatoes between the pita.  Remove lamb from the water bath and pull the meat apart with your fingers or a fork.  Add to the pita.  Roll and serve!

It’s a little jarring at first to see shredded lamb that’s so bright pink and moist.  But one bight of this dish will make you forget every lamb sandwich you’ve ever eaten.  Rather than tough, dry meat that begs for the rehydrating action of mint jelly, this is lamb as it should be.

Full Disclosure: I got free stuff, but that doesn’t pay for my opinion.

I’m confused, was it a shank or a chop? And what is an American chop — loin, rib, or something else?

Whatever it was it looks fantastic, I must try it.

Great blog here! Additionally your website lots up fast! What host are you the use of? Can I get your associate link to your host? I desire my web site loaded up as fast as yours lol

I study here Lolita Fix pretty much everyone who thinks this is pee has never been able to pleasure a girl right, when one stimulates the gspot, fluid builds up (that isnt pee, its similar to prostate fluid) and when she orgasms its ejected through her pee hole, so even though its going through the same hole, it isnt pee

A financial advisor Nude Lolita Looks like you could park a DeSoto in that pussy. I’d try to rub one out one one side of it though. Tit’s look like fried ostrich eggs. I wouldn’t kick her outta bed unless I wanted to fuck her on the floor.

Have you got a telephone directory? Loli Preteen Porn These are deff not fake, if have same inside a chick and witnessed it then u would kno…..lol ur jus a hater who unlike sum guys like myself we can actually fill up an ass and have a waterfall of cum ooooze out..

Could I make an appointment to see ? Nude Preteen Bbs you know, the whole rubbin the clit is nice but would’nt it be even nice to see you shoving your fingers in your tight little fuck hole. I had a huge fucking cock when I started watching but got limp and finally started fast forwarding through your vid looking for something in your twat and not just rubbing around your clit. Disappointing, guess I’ll go find a pretty young thing who know’s how to shove stuff in her pussy.
