Home Cooked Heaven…. Lamb Chops

You will need:

  • Lamb chops
  • Two potatoes
  • Two carrots
  • Broccoli

Preparation Method:

  1. Firstly you need to bring your potatoes to boil for your mash this will take around 3o mins
  2. While this is cooking cook your carrots and broccoli, I cook them in the same pan which will take about 20 mins
  3. For your lamb rub salt and pepper each side
  4. Place your lamb chops into a hot pan with a little oil
  5. Fry each chop for approximately 3minutes each side (at most)
  6. By now your potatoes will be ready to mash, I like to add a little butter and a splash of milk when mashing.

Serve and enjoy :0)


Layers of tears!

We all know that the worst part about cooking with onions is the chopping of them. Here are some quick tips to how you can cook onions without crying.

  1. Chill the onions in the fridge for about half an hour or the freezer for fifteen minutes before chopping.
  2. Dunk your onions into cold water for 20 minutes first.
  3. Use a sharp knife. Using a blunt knife will crush the cell walls, rather than cleanly slice through them—this crushing releases more of the gas that hurts your eyes.
  4. If your recipe calls for chopped onions, cut a cone out of the root base, removing the root in its entirety—this central core of the onion contains the bulk of cells that release those eye-irritating gases.
  5. Chop onions near a fan or underneath the vent fan over your stove to help draw away the gas.
  6. Chop you onions next to a lit flame, this will draw the gasses released towards the flame.
  7. Try chopping whilst you eat a piece of white bread, many people claim this works.
  8. Chew gum while you chop.
  9. If all else fails why not get out the blender!
