  • Yields: 4 servings


8 American Lamb blade or loin chops

2 ounces Fresh gingerroot, peeled and sliced

1 Lemon, juiced

1 (small) Onion, peeled and quartered

1Season chops with salt and pepper. In a food processor or blender, combine soy sauce, sake, oil, gingerroot, lemon juice, onion, bell pepper, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cover the chops with the mixture; marinate for approximately 1 hour.
