What do you do with leftover lamb chops, steaks, or porkchops?
I know when I go to a great restaurant and order a giant steak or lamb chop along with sides, appetizers and dessert, I never end up finishing my meat. I always feel bad wasting a good piece of meat. So a few weeks back I went to Kokkari Estiatorio, which is one of my favorite places to eat at in San Francisco. I had the lambchop along with a gazilion other dishes and needless to say, I didn’t finish. I brought back a lamb chop along with the lemon roasted potatoes. The next morning I wanted to eat the chop but didn’t want to simply panfry it because it just won’t be the same as having it fresh off the grill and it’s a day old. So what better way to eat the leftover than to dice it up and turn it into a hash. You can also dice the left over meat up and make tacos with it. In this case, I made a lamb hash and paired it with runny sunnyside eggs:)
Lamb Chop Hash with Sunnyside Eggs and Toast
Ingredients: serves 1
1 lamb chop
2 roasted potato wedges, diced
1/4 cup minced parsley
2 eggs, sunnyside
2 pieces of whole wheat toast sliced in half
salt and pepper
1. Dice your lamb chop.
2. Dice your potatoes and mince your parsley
3. Sautee your lamb, potatoes, and parsley in a non stick pan.
4. Season and plate after the lamb is a bit charred and thoroughly heated along with the potatoes.
5. Now make your sunnyside eggs.
6. Toast your bread and spread your favorite spread ( butter, jam, peanut butter etc)
7. Plate your eggs next to your hash.
8. Douse with tabasco if you like it spicy:)
9. DIG IN!
PS. This blog post I would like to dedicate to Laurie Halabaso. Thanks for following my blog and your wonderful comments. It’s always nice to meet one of my readers and I’m glad you were able to visit Fang this time you were up in San Fran. I remember you saying that your husband loves eggs and especially the runny yolk kind and also likes high protein. Here is a great brunch recipe where you can use leftover steaks to make something equally delicious the next day while incorporating something your husband loves: runny yolks. And here is the pic you too of us at Fang! Hope you enjoy it 🙂
