Grilled Lamb Chops with Pistachio Mint Pesto
I have a great cookbook for you today if you are wanting to jump into the world of sous vide. The Complete Sous Vide Cookbook by Chris McDonald and it is filled with more than 175 fantastic recipes, and tips and techniques too! From this cookbook I chose Grilled Lamb Chops with Pistachio Mint Pesto. Lamb is gorgeous at anytime of the year and if you have access to a sous vide and then grill there is no better way to enjoy lamb chops.
I loved the Pistachio Mint Pesto that went with the lamb. Mint and lamb are so made for each other. I had fresh mint growing in our garden too, it was so nice to use that in a recipe like this one.
Succulent and juicy are these chops. The sous vide locks in the flavor and cooks them to perfection. This recipe can be made for 2 to 3 racks of lamb or even one as we did for a romantic dinner for two.

I recently delved into sous vide cooking when Hamilton Beach gave me a slow cooker/sous vide to review. What an amazing machine!! This cooks protein like no other, and then a quick sear to make it perfect. The cookbook will walk you through all that is needed to get the most out of sous vide cooking with thorough easy to follow instructions.
I have now made chicken, beef, salmon and lamb in our sous vide, all of them with outstanding results. This cookbook offers a lot for you to try. Recipes like New York Steak with Bordelaise Sauce, Miami Ribs, Georgian Pork Shoulder Roast with Pomegranate Glaze, Warm Duck Breast Salad wtih Walnuts and Apples, Chicken Liver Mousse and so many more including sauces, veggies and desserts.
