Rosemary lamb chops + pumpkin mash17

Rosemary Lamb Chops w/ pumpkin mash

Autumn is here, enjoy the produce.

This is another recipe I created for Morning Copy‘s lovely client Butcherman using their delicious meat!

As we edge into Autumn the weather starts to cool and a whole new range of seasonal produce becomes available; pumpkins, mushrooms, pears, pomegranates, truffles, pistachio nuts, fennel, parsnip and celeriac – just to name a few.

Meat has seasons too and normally you’d associate Spring with lamb, but there’s new season lamb around right now that’s simply wonderful.

I’ve kept this dish seasonal by using pumpkin and mushrooms. I especially love mashing other vegetables with potato, such as pumpkin or cauliflower, because it’s an easy way to increase your daily veggie intake – oh, and it tastes great too!

Enjoy, Christie x

Rosemary Lamb Chops recipe

serves 4

2 sprigs of rosemary, leaves picked and finely chopped
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus 2 tablespoons extra
12 (2x1kg packs) Butcherman Lamb Loin Chops
1 cup of peeled and diced potato
4 cups of peeled and diced pumpkin
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup milk
Buttered, sauteed mushrooms, to serve

1. Mix together the rosemary and 3 tablespoons of oil, reserving a few pinches of rosemary for garnish. Rub the herb mixture all over the lamb loin chops.

2. Place the diced potato and pumpkin in a large pot and fill with enough water to just cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes until vegetables are very tender. Drain thoroughly.

3. Return the empty pot to the stove and add the butter and milk. Stir until the butter has melted and the milk it hot, but not boiling. Add the potato and pumpkin and season with salt and pepper. Mash until smooth and keep warm.

4. Heat a large frying pan over high heat and add the 1 tablespoon of oil. Fry six of the chops for 8-10 minutes, turning once, for medium or until your liking. Repeat with the remaining tablespoon of oil and six chops.

5. Rest the lamb chops for 5 minutes in a warm place then sprinkle with extra rosemary. Serve with the pumpkin mash and buttered mushrooms, if you like.

  • Mmmm…new season lamb! Bring it on! Love the whole dish Christie…we’re entering a whole new season with lovely new produce…can’t wait!

  • I love lamb! This is a simple and easy recipe that really exentuates good produce. Looks great.

  • My family loves roasted lamb or pan fried lamb. Yours look very delicious. I like the way you go about it with pumpkin mash.

  • Can’t wait for a glorious lamb dish as soon as lent is over!

  • Oh yum! Looks super delicious! I love the idea of using seasonal produce. Gives me something to look forward to when the weather changes.

  • yum….this looks super delicious!

  • I’m all drooly right now, like Hooch in Turner & Hooch. I love mashed pumkin too.

  • This is my favourite way of making lamb – I’m hungry again now!

  • Yum! I say bring on autumn and winter too. Being from the Northern Hemisphere I seem to have a better repertoire for cold weather than for hot!

  • That looks so good. It’s (just about) Spring here, but I reckon I might knock something similar up – maybe with sweet potato. Mmmmm

  • Lamb and rosemary were just made for each other and I am so looking forward to the cooler weather vegetables coming in to season!

  • ahh! With the impending autumnal season approaching, your pumpkin mash would be perfect over a nice warm apple cider. I love the gorgeous photos too! I feeel as though I can almost taste it.

  • I grew up with no access to lamb so when I got to Sydney I just went crazy for it. I like the use of really only rosemary to flavour the meat… if you get good quality meat all you need is minimal ingredients to celebrate it! Happy Easter!

  • Yummo! So can I come over when you’re doing these recipes for them? ;)

  • What is it about rosemary and lamb that go together so well? I imagine the spice enhances the savory pumpkin mash as well, for those who mix their meat and potatoes.

    Any wine pairing ideas? I’m a Gascon rep so of course I’d try this with malbec, but malbec typically goes well with strong meats like lamb. Sounds delicious all year round!

  • looks like a healthy and yummy recipe. may replace tat with lamb racks isntead.
