Lamb is the national dish of Greece and is very common throughout the region. In fact, lamb is so popular in different parts of Greece that it makes up more than half of the country’s agricultural output. With this in mind, lamb (as well as most other livestock) is also one of the largest consumers of animal feed. This means that the average Greek family spends more than a hundred euros a month just on animal feed. The majority of Greek farmers are small-scale and prosperous. They are all members of the agricultural cooperatives and each of them has a sheep. It is important for a Greek farmer to have enough of working animals and they need to breed them well in order to ensure that their economic activities go on running smoothly. The lamb

The first thing I noticed about the lamb (mutton) chops were the long, thin, thick, filleted (skinned), chunks of meat. They were quite a bit bigger than I was expecting since I had never tried lamb chops before, and they were also a bit more tender and juicy than I would have expected. The chunks of meat were all quite uniform and they were also very thin, which made them very easy to cook.

One of the best parts about the summer months is that there is an abundance of fresh lamb (meat) to be had from the local butcher (shop) or farmers market. Lamb is lean and healthy but is often overlooked in favor of more popular meats such as chicken and pork. But lamb is different than most meats in that it is a lean protein that is high in protein, low in fat, and low in cholesterol.

This is a recipe for dry pan-fried lamb (mutton) chops that may be served as an appetizer or as a side dish with your dinner. The lamb chops are marinated twice to add flavor and depth to the dish. Apart from the other freshly roasted spices, these lamb chops have a tangy and sour flavor. There are two types of chops: front and rear. You may use any of them, but I like back chops. Lamb chops have grown extremely popular in restaurants, and they are often served as an appetizer. You can even prepare it yourself and eat it.

Time to prepare: 20 minutes (excluding time to marinate)

Time to cook: 30 minutes
