What are you cooking when you go camping or RVing? Maybe lamb chops? For most people, what we choose to eat while camping tends to be the last decision that we make. We make sure we have all our gear, car keys & beer before we go out into the woods. And even when you do think about food, we tend to go for the easy stuff. The fact that we are outside our normal indoor kitchen challenges us to think outside the box about food.

But what if I told you that you could cook something gourmet around the campfire that isn’t too complicated? What if I told you that you don’t need any fancy grill or gear to make this happen? In fact, you probably have all the gear you need in your kitchen.

Introducing my new Cast Iron American Lamb Chops Recipe


All you will need for this great campfire meal is a fire, cast iron skillet, knife & a cutting board. First, grab some delicious American lamb chops on your way to the campsite. Next you need some herbs from my recipe below and some butter. Get your fire really hot, and get ready to cook. Sear those lamb chops and get ready to flip. Now, lamb chops do not take a long time to cook. In fact, most people tend to over cook them so make sure to only cook them for 4 minutes per side. Once you get that nice crust from the butter & white wine, you will squeeze some lemon zest on top and serve pipping hot. Eat your lamb immediately after serving. You do not need to rest it!


At the end of the day, simple yet delicious is all we are looking for at the campfire. Try these Cast Iron American Lamb Chops & you will have a new flare for outdoor cooking!
