Ratatouille lamb chops recipe

Prepare for a dinner party that will go down in history. French cuisine is the way to go if you’re a foodie since it goes so well with fine dining. In contrast, ratatouille isn’t a fancy cuisine but rather a traditional food from the countryside. Even with the roasted veggies and lamb chops, you’ll still wow your guests. Our lamb chops with ratatouille are as delicious as they appear.

Ratatouille lamb chops suggestions

If aesthetics are your goal, “Frenching” the chops and separating the meat from the rib bones will do the trick. It’s best to cook the lamb chops over an open fire, and this recipe works just as well with a braai. The meaty lamb chops are complemented by the ratatouille, a simple vegetable side dish. As a side, try serving it with some fried potatoes and a slice of lemon. Serve with your favourite bottle of wine and enjoy.

Try these ratatouille lamb chops for your next braai when you want to treat your guests to something special but also enjoy a fantastic cookout.
