Seattle-based Figbo is a new company that delivers organic meats and vegetables from our favorite local farmers right to our doorstep. No need to go to the farmer’s market or even the farm, just select from boxes of vegetables, beef, pork, lamb or chicken and it will be on your doorstep in 24 hours. They even have fantastic curated recipes to help you create healthy, delicious meals for your family. Their goal is to “help sustain an economic and social infrastructure that provides nutritious, environmentally-friendly organic produce while helping local farmers and producers thrive.”
We tried it out and ordered up a lamb box featuring various cuts of 100% grass fed lamb (chops, ground lamb, stew meat, sausage and a half-rack) from Jones Family Farm on Lopez Island. Buy an individual box of your likely or check out their various monthly subscription plans (for as little as $29.95 a month) and see what gets you drooling. We'll be ordering the 100% grass fed beef box next. Be sure to try them out here; all you need is a credit card and an address!
Check out our simple Rosemary Garlic Grilled Lamb Chops recipe below:
Less is more when it comes to cooking any high-quality meat as the natural flavors of the meat come through. A little garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper is all you need to make these chops sing! Before serving, give each chop a spritz of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of zest for a bright punch of flavor.
4 lamb chops
1-2 cloves garlic, mashed
Kosher or sea salt
Fresh rosemary, about 1 tablespoon finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Zest and juice from one lemon, preferably Meyer lemon
Mash the garlic cloves along with a couple pinches of kosher or sea salt (you want a coarser grain salt, not table salt) and mash into a paste with the back of a fork. Transfer to a small bowl.
Finely chop the rosemary and add to the garlic mixture. Add the olive oil and mix thoroughly.
Spread mixture on both sides of the lamb chops and season with freshly ground black pepper.
Place on a heated grill and grill to the doneness of your liking (internal temperature of 145° F for medium rare, 160° F for medium).
Let chops rest for 5 minutes then squeeze a bit of lemon juice over each one and top with a pinch of zest.
Editorial disclosure: Figbo was kind enough to send us the lamb box to try in exchange for our honest review. We loved the quality of the product so much that we'll be ordering again - on us.
