An Affair With Lamb

So a few weeks ago I was doing our monthly grocery shopping and I came across a great deal in the meat section.  There was one package of lamb breast (ribs ) sitting in the section and it was such a great price I had to buy it to try it.  I have had lamb before once in my entire life when Steve and I were dating  he took me to this restaurant in Towson and I had rack of lamb.  I have always wanted to attempt to make the dish but I was always too worried to try it and as time passed on I got worried about spending the money to buy the lamb and then ruin the dish.  So I was scared.  I am really  not the rib authority in our house.  I divert all ribs and stuff like that to the hubby.  Well then I had to figure out what to do with them also.  Well I just decided to BBQ them in the oven.  I cooked them low and slow for about 2 hours and then I uncovered them and raised the heat up to finish it off.  I used a dry rub that Steve created for a pork loin we had a few weeks back and it was excellent.  It was very different there was lots of fat because I didn’t trim it off, I kept it to lock in the juices and not dry the meat and that helped but I think it was great and Kennedi loved it.  She kept calling it chicken but the cleaned all the meat off the bones.  Check out the finished dish.

I hope that Mr. Pork forgives me for stepping out on him with Mr. Lamb but it was a good affair and I think I am gonna see Mr. Lamb again so he will just have to get used to it.  Next time I am gonna try something a little different but who knows we will see.

P.S. I tried the black beans and rice dish again and it worked this time.  I think it was a good look.
