Baking Bad – Sacrificial Lamb Chops

Sacrificial Lamb Chops

Get some succulent meat cuts. Lamb chops. Preferably virgins. Or the one Abraham sacrificed instead of his son (what an asshole)

Anyway. Get good lamb chops.

In a sacrificial chalice mix salt, crushed pepper, thyme, sage and lemon juice. Quantities depend on how many you’re making. Be generous with the salt. More than usual desi salt quantities.

Rub this paste into the meat cuts. Like salt in your worst enemy’s wounds.

Let it sit for a couple of hours. Overnight in the fridge if you can. Or even 2 hrs at room temperature if you’re an impatient prick.

Pre heat oven to 350 °F

Heat olive oil and unsalted butter in a skillet on the stove top. Dump a whole crushed garlic and let it sizzle.

When it’s about smoking hot, place one lamb chop on the skillet and sear for 2 minutes. Use a spoon and drizzle some hot oil and garlic on top of the meat. Flip over after about 2 mins. Tell the fire department its ok, you’re just cooking, when your fire alarm goes off.

After searing both sides, place it on a baking tray. You can line it with foil (it’s easier to clean later)

Repeat with all the pieces. Drizzle the left over garlic oil on top of the pieces on the baking tray.

Place the tray into the oven and let it sit for about 12 mins. Turn off the oven and let it sit for another couple of minutes.

Serve. Dabao. Savor the supreme sacrifice of the lamb that got snuffed out to massage your cravings, you magnificent creature atop the pyramid!

The Lords of the Strings

It’s been a while since I’ve seen such authentic, passionate musicians exuding such exuberant, unjarable jam. You can tell by how I’m fumbling to find the right words. Virtuosity and technical skills aside, what we saw on stage was pure, unadulterated fun. Every musician on stage was obviously thoroughly enjoying himself and all that energy radiated right across the […]

Stop with the mic-drop already

As a one-time-part-time sound engineer, here’s my appeal to all the heads of state and celebrities who think a ‘mic-drop’ proves you’re cool. Well, like all things ‘cool,’ it used to be cool until everyone started doing it. It’s not cool anymore. What’s more, it actually damages the sensitive diaphragms in the mic heads. The […]

Trendsetters leave me alone

I wake up every morning with the most natural thing on my face – a stubble. Well, that’s every morning to be honest, and I must admit, the facial follicles are, measured in centimetres, a bit longer than ‘stubble’ suggests. Nothing symbolises my pure laziness more than my Stubble with a capital S. It just grows. On it’s […]
