Homespun hill farm grilled lamb chops

8 grass-fed lamb chops, cut 1-inch thick

Rosemary, Garlic and Mustard Baste:

2 tablespoons brown mustard

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon fresh snipped rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

1 teaspoon fresh snipped thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Trim excess fat from the lamb chops, if desired.

Rosemary, Garlic and Mustard Baste: In a small bowl, combine the brown mustard, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and pepper. Using a basting brush, brush the mixture onto one side, or both sides of each lamb chop.

Place the lamb chops on a pre-heated gas grill, or over hot charcoals. Cover and grill over medium-high to high heat for 3 to 5 minutes each side, or until desired doneness is achieved. When turning the chops, brush the tops again with the mustard baste if desired. Serves 4.

Tip: Grass-fed lamb has less fat, so for best results, cook the chops to an internal temperature of 120 to 145 degrees.

Marinated beets

4 to 5 medium-sized beets

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 garlic clove, minced

Remove the tops from the beets and place them in a baking dish with a small amount of water. Cover and cook in a 350 degree oven until tender, about 1 hour, depending on size. Cool the beets, slip off their skins and slice them about 1/4-inch thick. Place the sliced beets in a shallow bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil and garlic. Pour the mixture over the beets, cover and refrigerate overnight before serving. Serve the beets as a side dish, or add them to a tossed green salad.
