Cast iron lamb with feta, broiled eggplant and okra

Cast iron lamb with feta, broiled eggplant and okra

My Greek friend loves feta. I mean, she really, really loves the stuff. I called her today as I was driving to the weekend market. It was great catching up with her and I miss her a lot since she moved to London.

I had Greece, friends, and feta on my mind as I walked past the busy stalls. I never really go there with a purpose or a shopping list, but today I picked up some freshly-cut, bone-in lamb chops and some dry, crumbly feta since I was on a Mediterranean-inspired mission. I also thought some pretty looking baby eggplant and okra would be a nice creamy offset to the cheese and robustly seasoned lamb chops, so grabbed a few.

There is a salad I like to make -- chunks of cucumbers, tomatoes, Greek olives, and red onion tossed in parsley, lemon juice, oregano, and olive oil. And of course feta! Today, I miniaturized it, keeping the flavors and the essence of the dish, while turning it into more of a relish.

The chops were tossed in a quick marinade of olive oil, lemon juice, cumin seeds (which really mellow out and get toasty flavored when they pop), oregano, paprika, and salt and pepper. I allowed to crust on a hot cast iron pan. The paprika from the market turned the olive oil a beautiful hue of deep red.

I let the seasoned and oiled eggplant and okra take their time in the broiler oven till they were golden brown on the outside and velvety on the inside.

I plated with a few triangles of that delicious feta and some olives (I know you don't like olives but you know I do, sorry!).

Next time you come to town, make some of those awesome spinach pies and I'll whip up some lamb! Ciao! :)

The Perfect Accident: London Broil

The Perfect Accident: London Broil

Very simple prep: took it out of the fridge when I got home from work, didn't trim. Just rubbed in a marinade of little bit of leftover wine (rose malbec, to be exact), soy sauce, starch, black pepper, a lot of garlic. Let sit while the oven pre-heats.

Baked at 375F for almost an hour, but it was still not quite done. When I turned the oven back on, I accidentally had it on Broil when I was going to do it later. In about 10 minutes, it smelled really good.. In another 5 minutes, it was perfectly done. Surprisingly juicy and flavorful. I think the starch helped the steak retain some of the juices.
