My local butcher only had escalopes in - there was not unfortunately the demand for any decent cuts. However, whilst down at Borough Market shopping for the Cassoulet ingredients at the Ginger Pig, I noted a couple of juicy chops staring up at me.
So - I jumped at the chance, and then went through that embarassing moment when the kindly butcher asked for £15!! and plainly I could not say no!
Was it worth it? You bet! Juicy & thick, a lamb come beef taste and yep - served up with some left over Happy Faces amongst other random fridge left overs. Awesome.
