Baked lamb chops lavished with a sweet and tangy soy sauce anyone? This delicious dish was a favourite of Nelson Mandela, especially as part of a Sunday lunch or early dinner.
I used to prepare these succulent baked lamb chops for him whenever he spent time at home on a Sunday. This dish always brings back fond memories as Nelson Mandela used to enjoy the rest of his plate with his cutlery but when he got to the lamb chops, he would use his hands to savour each tasty bite. He would not even leave a trace of meat on any bone.
The secret to getting these baked lamb chops irresistible is locked in the piquant soy sauce. Make sure you lavish the chops generously with the soy sauce before you pop them back into the oven for the last 15 minutes.
Serve these baked lamb chops with vegetables of your choice. I love serving it with mashed potato and a colourful mix of vegetables to ensure a balanced meal.
