There’s something amazing about the combination of spicy curry and the gaminess of the lamb meat. The flavors meld together so well and this dish tastes like what you would get at a restaurant. These grass-fed lamb loin chops are so tender and juicy and I love that it only takes 10 minutes in the oven. Enjoy with a side of veggies and rice or cauliflower rice!

I love traditional cooking methods like fermenting, slow cooking (bone broth everyday!), soaking and sprouting, and growing my own herbs whenever I can. I can’t live without healthy fats like butter, lard, and tallow, and you can find me cooking with local, organic vegetables and pasture-raised, grass-fed meats. My dream is to own a small farm one day and eat farm fresh eggs everyday.
