Living Joyfully with Pirch: Sage and mustard-seed crusted lamb chops with smoked fingerling potatoes


Our friends at Pirch Rancho Mirage share a seasonal barbecue lamb recipe as we spend more time outdoors in the winter months in the desert. Chef Kimberly with Pirch shows us how to make a savory grilled lamb chops with fingerling potatoes and delicata squash for sides.

Making the whole meal is easy with an EVO Grill. One grill can saute, braise, grill, pan fry, roast, poach, steam and toast! Quite a lot for one grill. The cart Chef Kimberly features is from Moya. The cart showcases the beautiful grill while offering storage compartments, which makes entertaining and cleanup easy.
