We move to Memphis, Tennessee for some real Southern cooking for the fifth round of Combinations
. Benito, our host this month, has selected a superb sounding dish imparting the real flavours of his home city – Grilled Mint Julep Lamb Chops with Slow Cooked Green Beans
. The lamb is coated in a mint-infused bourbon before cooking while the beans (French green beans) are cooked with a ham hock (or a substitute as Benito details).
While this dish shouldn’t cause too many problems with a wine match, which is the idea behind Combinations, you might want to move beyond the usual Bordeaux red match (a classic with lamb) to take into account those Bourbon flavours…
If you are planning to join in, entries should be posted on your blog by the 24th.
