Lamb chops … without the braai!

Feel like chops, but don’t want the fuss of a fire. Fret not. These air-fried chops are delicious … and so easy. Perfectly cooked succulent lamb chops, flavoured with fragrant herbs and roasted to perfection in the Defy Airfryer. Served with lashings of herby garlic sauce, all in under half an hour.
You’ll need: 8 lamb chops; 1 bulb garlic and 2 Tbsp olive oil; 1 Tbsp fresh oregano, finely chopped; 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped; sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste; another 2 Tbsp olive oil
To make: Preheat the Defy Airfryer to 200°C.
Thinly coat the garlic bulb with 2 Tbsp of olive oil and put in the basket, set the timer to 12 minutes and 180°C. Roast the garlic until done.
In the meantime, make the herb oil by mixing the herbs with some sea salt, pepper, and 2 Tbsp olive oil.
Thinly coat the lamb chops with half a tablespoon of herb oil in total and leave them for 5 minutes.
Replace the garlic with four lamb chops in the basket. Set the timer to 5 minutes and 180°C. Roast until nicely done – keep an eye on them through the glass viewing window to avoid opening the basket and losing heat. Inside they may still be red or pink. Keep them warm in a dish and roast the other lamb chops in the same way.
Make the garlic sauce by squeezing the garlic cloves between thumb and index finger, then combine with the remaining herb oil.
Serve the cooked lamb chops with the garlic sauce.

You get an unami burst of flavour with each grind of this new Oryx Chilli Salt … the latest flavour from Oryx Desert Salt. This hot new salt – with chilli-flakes making up 20 per cent of the volume of the grinder – comes as a result of a collaboration with Backyard Farms (BYF), a local, social-upliftment enterprise who’s created an innovative supply-chain business model, sourcing chillies from township-based, home and community gardeners. You’ll find it at premium Woolworths stores, Cape Union Mart, Pick ‘n Pay, Food Lovers Market, Dischem and Spar as well as most health shops and delis.

This Defy AirFryer (model DAF 3376 DB) has a generous capacity … the extra, extra large 7.6L cooking basket allows you to prepare larger meals for the whole family. Another plus we love is the convenient basket view window, so no more opening and shutting the fryer constantly to check on your meal. The touch control panel provides access to various cooking functions, and the air fryer can reach temperatures of up to 200°C. You’ll find it for R1499 at Takealot, Hirsch’s and Makro.

Also look out for the new biodegradable paper-tube packaging, which is in line with Oryx Desert Salt’s #RefillNotLandfill philosophy … you can find these smart refill boxes alongside the reusable glass grinders with long-lasting ceramic grinder heads.
