4 Lamb chops
3 tbsp Dark soy sauce
2 tbsp Rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp Sesame oil
3 tbsp Honey
4 x garlic cloves - finely crushed
Sprinkling of grated ginger
These succulent lamb chops marinated in homemade teriyaki sauce really are tantalisingly tasty. And, let us tell you, they’re even better when cooked over a smoky wood fire.
So, to begin, you’ll need to make the sticky teriyaki marinade a few hours before to let the flavours seep into the lamb meat. To do this, combine the dark soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and honey and mix together. Then, add the finely crushed garlic, grated ginger and chopped coriander and mix together well. Taste test the sauce and if needs be, add more ingredients until the sauce is to your liking.
Once you’re happy with the taste of the teriyaki sauce, place the lamb chops into the sauce and smother with the teriyaki sticky goodness! Cover with Clingfilm and leave to marinade out of the fridge for a couple of hours.
After a couple of hours or so, build a fire in your firepit or chimenea. Let the heat build and flames die down and once it’s ready, you can place your teriyaki chops straight onto the grill. Keep the left over teriyaki sauce and transfer it into a cast iron pot. Heat the sauce over the fire along with the lamb chops.
Cook the lamb meat to your liking, watching the teriyaki coating thicken with the heat from the real wood fire.
Once cooked, serve on a bed of fresh salad leaves. Top with fresh, sliced spring onions, thinly sliced radishes and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Drizzle the rest of the sauce over the chops, pick up and eat right away.
TIP! Try added finely chopped chillies to the marinade for a fiery flavour!
