Marinate lamb chops with Amina’s Spicy Texan Bbq Marinade* NEW

In a hot pan, add some oil and place in lamb chops and cook until browned on all

sides, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer lamb to a plate and reduce heat to medium. In the

same pan, stir in onion and cook until onions are slightly golden, about 3 minutes. Stir

in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Pour pomegranate juice into the pan and scrape any browned bits off of the bottom of

the pot. Pour in balsamic vinegar, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil. Stir

rosemary, mint leaves, and red pepper flakes into pomegranate juice mixture.

Continue to boil until liquid is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Return lamb and any

accumulated juices to the pan, spoon pomegranate mixture over lamb, and cover.

Cook in the preheated oven until meat is tender, +/- 45mins. Transfer lamb to a plate

and place pan on the stovetop over high heat. Bring pomegranate mixture to a boil.

Cook until liquid is slightly reduced (5 minutes). Stir in honey. Return lamb to the pan

and stir to combine. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and sliced mint leaves.

As salaamu alaykum,

I pray that all of you are well after the well-deserved holidays and back to school routine, in sha

Allah. As you may have read in the last edition we have added 2 new products to our spice family.

some tasty fresh ingredients I have used to give this dish a real twist.
