For the Lamb:

  • 4 New Zealand grass-fed lamb rib chops  (Tip: Look for the Taste Pure Nature logo) 
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce 
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme 
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder 
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili flakes 
  • 1 clove garlic, grated 

For the Soup:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 1 green onion, sliced (separate the green pieces and white pieces) 
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped 
  • 1/2 carrot, sliced into half moons 
  • 1/2 tablespoon curry powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes 
  • 2 cups beef broth (or broth of your choice) 
  • 3/4 teaspoon soy sauce 
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar 
  • 16 oz frozen udon noodles  


For the Lamb:

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, soy sauce, thyme, curry powder, chili flakes, and garlic.
  • 2. Place the rib chops on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Pour the marinade over the lamb chops and rub to coat thoroughly. Marinate the lamb chops for 15-30 minutes at room temperature.
  • 3. Heat a deep 9-inch pan over high heat and add olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the lamb chops and cook 30 seconds per side, or until each side is browned. 
  • 4. Reduce heat to medium and cook each side until the internal temperature reaches your desired level of doneness (3 minutes per side for medium-rare). Remove the lamb chops from the pan and set aside to rest. 

For the Soup:

  • 5. Using the same pan, increase the heat to medium-high and add the whites of the green onion, yellow onion, and carrots. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to char slightly.
  • 6. Add the curry powder and chili flakes. Stir for 30 seconds.
  • 7. Pour in the broth, scraping the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release any brown bits. Season with the soy sauce and sugar. Taste the broth and add more soy sauce and/or sugar, if desired. 
  • 8. Bring the broth to a boil. Add the udon noodles and bring back to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, or until the udon noodles are cooked through. 

To Serve:

  • 9. Evenly distribute the noodles and broth between two bowls.
  • 10. Slice the lamb chops between the two ribs. Top each bowl with 2-3 lamb chops and garnish with green onion. Serve immediately.
