Company Dinner – Coriander Lamb Chops

Here’s a page from my upcoming cookbook “3 Ingredient Low Carb Recipes” (title still under construction – any suggestions?). Even if you or your guests aren’t eating low carb these recipes will wow them.

A note about 3 ingredient recipes. I don’t count salt, pepper, oil or the title ingredient. For instance if it’s a lamb chop recipe, it’s a given that you’ll have a lamb chop, salt and pepper and maybe oil in the pan. Even so, I’ve still kept the recipes as simple as possible.

The carb counts for these recipes are calculated based on net carbs (total carbs minus fiber).

Coriander Lamb Chops­

Serves 4 = 0 carbs per serving

You can easily multiply this recipe to serve as many as you like. If you choose to use fresh herbs in place of the dried coriander then use 2 teaspoons, finely chopped.

Ingredients:

4 to 8 lamb rib or shoulder chops to equal 24 to 32 ounces total

2 teaspoons dried coriander

salt and pepper

Instructions:

Rub both sides of chops with coriander. If you can let the lamb sit with the coriander rub for 2 or 3 hours, great, otherwise proceed by seasoning with salt and pepper. Grill, broil or sauté in oiled pan over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare.

Variations: use any of the following in place of coriander:

  • rosemary
  • Herbs de Provence
  • Italian Seasoning
  • mint
  • dill
  • garlic
  • oregano

Serve with Lemon Sour Cream Sauce if desired – don’t forget to add the carbs for the sauce.

Lemon Sour Cream Sauce

4  1/4 cup servings = 2.5 carbs per serving

I love this sauce because it’s so versatile. You can drizzle it over ham, fish, asparagus, green beans … It’s also a good veggie dip or salad dressing.

Ingredients:

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

In a small bowl mix all ingredients. Spoon ¼ cup sauce (1 serving) over Coriander Lamb Chops. Remaining sauce keeps well in the fridge to use as a salad dressing or dip.

 

Mock Mashed Potatoes

4 servings = 3 carbs per serving

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower broken into florets or 1 bag frozen cauliflower

1 tablespoon sour cream or mascarpone cheese

½ teaspoon vegetable or chicken broth powder – be sure to use powdered broth and not liquid broth

3 tablespoons butter

¼ teaspoon ground black or white pepper

Instructions:

Steam or microwave cauliflower until it’s so soft that it falls apart when poked with a fork, about 6 minutes. Pat dry with a towel to remove as much moisture as possible.

Puree cauliflower with remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning, butter, and sour cream so that you end up with a rich tasting dish that NO ONE will believe is not really mashed potatoes.

Optional Additions:

4 cloves roasted garlic = 1 carb

½ cup shredded Parmesan = 0 carbs

cooked turkey bacon = 0 carbs

¼ cup minced chives = 0 carbs

 

Herb Salad

4 servings = 1 carb per serving without dressing

Ingredients:

8 cups torn lettuce

your favorite sugar-free salad dressing

4 tablespoons sliced olives or 1 teaspoon chopped

4 tablespoons roughly chopped flat leaf parsley or mint

Instructions:

Toss lettuce with dressing together. Garnish with olives and herbs.

You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet.
