Restaurant Recipes from Atlanta
We recently had dinner at Pricci, and on this night one of the menu specials was lamb chops. They were wonderful. I would love to prepare this for my family.
Recipe by: Chef Piero Premoli
The lamb chops should marinate overnight
1 cup crushed Italian tomatoes
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1 ounce (about 1/4 cup) fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 thick-cut Frenched rib lamb chops
1 Tablespoon butter
9 ounces wild mushrooms
1/4 cup veal jus
In a 9-inch square baking dish, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper and whisk until well combined.
Marinate the lamb in tomato mixture in the refrigerator overnight.
To cook, preheat the grill.
In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter and then add mushrooms and sauté until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
Wipe off the extra marinade from the chops and grill to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Arrange half the mushrooms on each of 2 plates.
Top with 3 chops each.
Drizzle each with half the veal jus.

Notes: The total time listed includes 8 hours' marinating. Although Piero Premoli uses a combination of beautiful wild mushrooms -- shiitake, maitake and chanterelle -- you can substitute any combination, such as shiitake and cremini. For the veal jus, look for a high-quality concentrated stock available in grocery and specialty stores, then dilute according to package directions . If you wish, you could dress this plate with a simple sautéed vegetable, such as kale or chard -- both of which are served in Tuscany in the winter.
