Thu's Asian Style BBQ Lamb Chops

Category: food

“Coming from a Cambodian/Chinese background, we like to celebrate Christmas with lots of food” says Thu, owner of Fancy Fillings in Stockland Traralgon. “Christmas for us is celebrated with not only our immediate family, but also the extended family and friends so we always prepare food on the BBQ – it’s the easiest way to cook for a lot of people”. 

Here’s Thu’s favourite party dish, marinaded in her family’s a special Asian-style sauce. It’s simple, delicious and perfect for any large family gathering!

  • Serves: 6
  • Time needed: Overnight marinate, 8-10 minutes on the grill
  • Difficulty Easy


Ingredients

  • 2 stalks lemon grass sliced
  • 4 lime leaves finely sliced
  • 5 garlic crushed
  • ½ cup oyster sauce
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 can of coconut milk

Directions

  • Step 1

    Grind the lemon grass and lime leaves together in a mortar and pestle. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can also grind it in a small coffee grinder machine.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together with the meat and leave for a few hours in the fridge until it’s ready to grill on the BBQ.

  • Step 3

    Cook for 8-10 minutes on medium to high heat depending on how well done you like your lamb.
