Tender mutton chops with parsley salad

I don't know why, but these chops have been on my mind for a very long time. I ate the best ones in Turkey, during the holidays, somewhere in a corner of the bazaar, in a place that seemed forgotten by the world and untouched for days. Such places should be visited, because they hide dishes or cooking techniques that you will not find in the hotel where you spend your vacation.

Like any gourmet, I immediately opened a discussion with the locals about the quality of the meat and the difficulty of finding such tender meat in Romania (especially since we don't eat so much ram), and they were kind enough to tell me how to always make it perfect… and they were right.

For the recipe I needed: 400 gr ram chops (as young as possible), a teaspoon of whole cumin, olive oil, salt, pepper, 300 ml milk, 4 bundles of parsley, a pomegranate, 1/3 cup cooked couscous ( over 1/3 cup couscous put 1/3 cup boiled water and leave for 3 minutes), juice of 1-2 lemons, a large diced tomato.

Start with the chops. I hope I managed to gain your trust, so give them salt and pepper and leave them in the milk overnight. The maceration process is long, so do not skip this step, because then you will have to depend only on the quality of the meat. The next day, wipe the chops with napkins, put salt, pepper, cumin and a little olive oil on them and brown them well in the pan on both sides. It takes about 6-10 minutes.

Because they match very well with something fresh, I made the parsley salad. To do this, finely chop the parsley, add the pomegranate seeds, diced tomatoes, couscous, lemon juice, a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Because mutton is the central element that I have stayed with for years and years, I will describe it briefly - the meat comes out so tender that it can "break", and the cumin gives it a special taste. So special that you will start using it more often for meat and less for tea.

Only when I hear of marinated mutton chops, does it leave my mouth watering :)

Marinating is a method that not only helps to soften the meat, but also gives it flavor, by using and combining sauces, vegetables and spices.

It will reveal a very successful marinade recipe that I use quite often)


  • mutton chops - 10-15 pcs
  • red wine (semi-dry) - 200 ml
  • pomegranate essence / concentrate - 50 ml
  • fresh thyme - a few threads
  • onion - a piece
  • garlic - 3–4 pieces
  • balsamic vinegar - 2-3 tbsp
  • grape seed or soybean oil - 100 ml (I use one of these 2 assortments of oil… more details about oil, find in the section "TIPS & IDEAS")
  • orange - one piece (use orange juice)
  • pepper - a teaspoon
  • salt - a teaspoon


For starters, DO NOT wash the meat. Gently remove the blood with a napkin, if necessary. If washed, much of the meat's flavor is lost. Portion the chops individually, then thoroughly clean the bone of each piece of fat and skin (DO NOT debone, keep the chops with the bone!).

Peel the onion and garlic and cut it into juliennes.

Wash the orange and squeeze.
Mix red wine, pomegranate essence, balsamic vinegar, oil, orange juice, salt, pepper, onion, garlic and thyme peeled. Then add the mutton chops in the above composition, baptized marinated), in a bowl covered with foil to keep it fresh or aluminum, or in a plastic container with a lid and keep in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

After 24 hours, place the chops nicely arranged in an oven tray, together with the composition in which it was marinated, in the oven heated to 180 ° C, for about 20 minutes. this depends on how we prefer the mutton chop, more bloody, medium or well done.

Baked mutton chops can be served with rice garnish, baked potatoes and baked vegetables, grilled or sauteed.
