Tiny Lamb Chops At Nazar - Tell Me About Them
Nazar Market in Columbia offers tiny lamb chops for about $6 a pound. They're butchered on site, and they look like "product" that could become a delicious dinner.
Just not at Casa de HowChow. It turns out that everyone here isn't up on eating lambs. Something about Mary and images of frolicking pet-sized sheep.
So I'm working through Steven Raichlen's Planet Barbecue, but I'm skipping the recipes for lamb chops. Instead, I point them out for you because Nazar's butchering seems to leave them ready for a quick grill or some other preparation. And I'd love to hear a report if you try them out.
At the far end from these tiny chops, you can buy thick loin lamb chops at J.W. Treuth in Oella.
