Chicken fried lamb chops with creamy gravy

  • For the gravy
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 475ml whole milk
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (preferably turbinado sugar)
  • For the lamb
  • Oil, for frying
  • 240g all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 single-rib french trimmed lamb chops, 2 chops per person
  • 475ml buttermilk
1) In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add flour and oil. Cook over medium heat for about 10 to 12 minutes whisking constantly until a peanut-brown color. Whisk in milk, salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to a boil, continuing to whisk. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, whisking frequently until sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon (not too thick, but not too thin). Make gravy before you fry the chops.

2) Add 2 1/2 cm of oil in a straight-sided 7 1/2 cm deep pan. Preheat oil in frying pan to 185°C.

3) Mix salt and pepper with flour. Dredge the lamb chops in the seasoned flour. Dip lamb chops in buttermilk, then back into the flour. Slowly add chops to preheated oil, about four per batch. Cook 2 minutes per side for medium doneness. Drain on a rack.

Serve with gravy.
