Note 1: All measurements are estimates. Nonna tastes items as she cooks. She adds spices or oil or vinegar until she likes the marinade’s taste. The hot sauce is purely her taste preferences! Nono thought the lamb chops were delicious.

Note 2: I really do not know how much bread crumbs or pistachios Nonna used. However, like the marinade you can taste it to make sure the balance between all ingredients is what you like!

Lamb Chops

Ingredients

    • Lamb Chops (Nonna cooked 8, but you can do more or less depending on how many you are feeding)
    • 1 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • fresh chopped parsley
    • fresh chopped rosemary
    • 1/4 cup garlic
    • 1 large chopped onion
    • Jacobsen Ghost Chili Salt
    • Jacobsen Black Garlic Salt
    • 1/2 tsp coriander
    • Thyme
    • Ancho Chili Pepper
    • Dan Pastorini Garlic and Herb Seasonings
    • Black Pepper
    • Freshly mixed garlic and ginger paste

Directions

    1. Mix the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, onion, garlic, parsley, rosemary, jacobsen ghost chili salt, Jacobsen black garlic salt, coriander, thyme, ancho chili pepper, Dan Pastorini Garlic and Herb Seasonings in a bowl.
    2. Season the lamb chops with jacobsen black garlic salt, Dan Pastorini’s garlic and herb seasonings, and black pepper. Season both sides by sprinkling each seasoning on each side.
    3. Sauté the olive oil and apple cider vinegar mixture over medium heat. Use a large frying pan. The onions will turn translucent. 4. 4. Add 1 tablespoon Garlic and Ginger paste. (See Note 1)
    4. When the onions are translucent, turn the heat too low and add the lamb chops. When the lamb chops are brown (about 5ish minutes) flip the chops. Lamb chops should cook to 170° F. (See Note 2)


Note 1: Nonna liked the marinade smell and thought some of her freshly mixed garlic and ginger paste would be good in the marinade. As such, she added a little to the marinade as it sauteéd. It worked out well!

Note 2: It is important to cook the lamb chops all the way through. However, cooking them with too much heat will cause the chops to burn. Best to lower the heat and cook slowly. Lamb chops should cook to 170° F.

Super Bowl Snackage: Better than Cocktail Weenies!

One last Super Bowl Snack Recommendation. This is a simple and quick recipe and makes for a great treat. Nonna made these boneless ribs in the Instant Pot.

This is a very basic recipe. As such there is not written recipe. The steps Nonna took are as follows:

1. Brown the ribs with an onion and garlic. You can brown them using the sauté feature in the instant pot. However, Nonna used a skillet on the stove top.
2. Season the ribs with your favorite spices. Nonna used Dan Pastorini’s Texas Style Rub and Garlic and Herb Seasoning and Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings. You can marinate the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce over night if you desire. Seasonings is really up to you in this recipe.
3. Place ribs in the instant pot (on a rack).
4. Add 1 cup beef broth and additional spices (optional). Nonna added some hot sauce.
5. Cook meat in your instant pot. Use meat stew setting. Nonna set time for 15 minutes and depressurized it. However, you should check your multi-cooker’s instruction for cooking times.
6. Cut ribs into bite size chunks and serve!

The intention was to put all three keto friendly party snacks in one video, but Editor General Aunt Winkie made an artistic decision to put these in three different videos. 

There are 3 videos to the Super Bowl Snack Series. 7 Layer Dip, Crab Dip, and Boneless Ribs!

Instant Pot – Pork Chops

Following a long day at work, Nonna quickly threw together a nice pork chop and salad dinner. Watch Nonna continue to learn the instant pot’s ins and outs, this time using the “sauté” function to quickly brown the pork chops before cooking. Nonna complimented her favorite spices and seasonings with a dijon mustard coating on the pork chops and a little dijon mustard her “quick fix” vinaigrette dressing.

Instant Pot – Pot Roast

A viewer requested that Nonna prepare some meals using an instant pot. Nonna Snowden was more than happy to oblige! In her first attempt with the Instant Pot, Nonna cooked a chuck roast (pot roast) using Dan Pastorini’s Texas Style Rub and gravy using Dan’s Garlic & Herb Seasoning. She also cooked broccoli and rice in the instant pot, with some lessons learned. Watch the video to learn what Nonna learned.
