Everyone has different tastes when it comes to food. I always find it interesting to hear what people like and don’t like. For example, my coworker can’t stand tomatoes unless they are cooked to oblivion. She picks anything red off her plate and throws it in the trash. My husband thinks curry dishes taste like soap, and I am not a fan of lamb. I find the flavor of the meat too gamey for me.
Lucky for Mike, I’m willing to cook most anything, whether it appeals to me or not. Using the same baking method I use for pork chops works just as well for lamb, so I coated my chops with dijon and mayonnaise, packed them into panko bread crumbs and baked them in the oven after a quick pan fry to brown both sides.
Since we all know I love to eat, I must admit I had a small piece of lamb. I still prefer pork or chicken, but a lamb chop here or there never hurt me.
