Asian Lamb Chops with Steamed Bok Choy


  • 1.25 pounds lamb, french-style and cut between bones (about 10)
  • 2 tablespoons Ume Plum Wine Vinegar (or preferred vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese Five Spice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 3 green onions, sliced (and extra for optional garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or organic butter
  • 3-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 large bunch of bok choy, roughly chopped


  1. Place lamb chops in a shallow dish.  Whisk vinegar, maple syrup, Chinese Five Spice, garlic powder, red pepper chili flakes, sesame oil, coconut aminos, and green onions.  Pour mixture over the chops.  Cover.  Refrigerate overnight.
  2. When you are ready to cook, heat the butter and garlic over medium high heat.  Toss the bok choy in the garlic butter.  Add 2 tablespoons water.  Reduce to low heat. Cover and steam for about 8-10 minutes until the white parts of the bok choy start to become translucent.
  3. On a grilling pan (or the grill), heat on medium with preferred oil (just a little brush of oil is needed).  Grill the chops on each side for 3-4 minutes until desired doneness.  I cook mine to 145 degrees F and then let them rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Plate the bok choy and lamb chops. Add freshly chopped green onions, if desired.
  5. Enjoy!

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are

    so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..

    Any tips? Thanks!

    • WordPress is what I enjoy; however, Blogger has a simpler format if you want to start with that. Also, read, read, read. It is a continual journey of learning but the information is out there. Good luck!
