Rubs and Farmers market booty
Tasty and simple is becoming my motto.
So here's another one and trust me; SUPER tasty and 5 minute prep time.
I found some grass fed lamb chops, (or ribs as some call them) a lot of supermarkets carry conventional ones coming from Australia or New Zealand. They are also very good.
Gave them a rub with; cumin, coriander, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder. (if you have mustard seed powder, please add. I was out of it)
I wrap them in some wax paper and place in a large ziploc. I will keep these in the fridge for 24-48 hours so they can age and the rub can really get in there. Now for the magic. Crush one large clove of garlic, chop and add to a ramakin with tamari sauce. (just 3 or 4 tablespoons) Cover and set in the fridge. After I've grilled the lamb chops I drizzle this garlic soy over them. Try it!
Here's some of Saturday's treasures from the farmers market. Those pineapples are locally and organically grown. They are small, but have an amazing flavor. Same for the spring onions.
I read on another blog how well produce from local sources keeps. I can second that, as the strawberries last at least a week. From the supermarket they seem to last 2 days.
