Sticky BBQ Forequarter Lamb Chops

Serves: 4
Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes


8 lamb forequarter chops, trimmed of excess fat

½ cup hoisin sauce, plus extra for greens

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp sesame oil, plus extra for greens

2 bunches choy sum, chopped in 8cm lengths

2 red capsicums, thinly sliced

1 bunch broccolini, chopped into 3cm pieces

Steamed brown rice, to serve


Pat lamb dry with paper towel and place on a plate. Mix hoisin, sugar and sesame oil in a bowl with 1 tablespoon warm water until smooth. Brush marinade onto lamb.

Preheat a chargrill pan over high heat until very hot. Place a piece of baking paper on the grill to prevent sticking and place lamb chops on the baking paper. Cook in batches to prevent overcrowding. Cook lamb for 4-5 minutes each side until marks appear and lamb is cooked to medium. Rest for 5 minutes.

Wash choy sum and toss with capsicum and broccolini in a hot frying pan or wok for 1 minute. Drizzle with a little sesame oil and hoisin sauce.

Serve lamb with vegetables and steamed brown rice.


You can marinate the lamb overnight if you have time for extra tenderness.
