S1-E1 Grilled Chimichurri Lamb Chops with Chef Ed - My high school buddy Ed Hahm makes his famous BBQ Lamb Chops with Chimichurri Sauce, plus he grills up some delicious Roasted Mushrooms and Corn on the side For our very first episode, we're meeting my old friend and an awesome dad, Ed Hahm. Ed. Jason, great to see you. Good to see you. Thanks for having me on the show. So Ed, what are you doing here at the field? Well every Saturday we come out here. My son's got a t-ball game. Let 'em run around a little bit. Get experience playing some baseball. This is our Saturday mornings. So now you, you're working on open heart surgery? No. I work as a physician assistant in adult cardiac surgery. Open the chest, replace the valves, do some bypass surgeries, and then we close em up and make sure they do well and send them home. When you see things on TV and they've got the chest ripped open, and there's a little thing beating in there, that's like you, right? That's pretty much it. Put a little duct tape on it. Yep or glue. A little bit glue. Slap it all back together. Boom you're out. It's just like cooking. I love it. It's a lot like cooking. I can't wait to see what you're gonna cook for us. The food, I hear, is delicious. I'm planning on cooking some grilled lamb chops with some chimichurri sauce. My kids love grilled corn and grilled roasted mushrooms. Awesome. I'm excited. This is going to be great. I'm really looking forward to tasting the meal, and checking it out, and having some fun. Great. So let's go do it. Dads That Cook. So tell me, how do you make your chimichurri? What do you do? Well, chimichurri is a vinegar based sauce. It consists of mostly flat leaf parsley, quarter cup of minced-Shallots? Minced shallots. Hey, I know something. We've got five garlic gloves, salt, red pepper flakes, olive oil and vinegar. So you're gonna mix that up in that little mixy blendy thing? That's right. I love those little things. Just brr and done. And it's easy to clean. Yeah I think every guy, every dad needs to have something like this, because it is super simple, you're gonna love it. All right great. Well, let's get it ready. So first we'll separate the flat leaf parsley from the stems. Easiest way to do that is to just kind of do a little bit of shaving, just rotate the bunch. Some of the stems can be left in there. Just smell that. That parsley smells so good. Oh, doesn't it smell great? You know actually Italians used this back in the days to freshen their breath. Well, let me have some. Here. Oh, so much better now. You smell very nice. All right. So now you just wanna just kinda chop it very coarsely, because what we're gonna do next is put it in our little food processor. Back to the food processor. Right. This thing's awesome. You guys need to get one. What we need next is some garlic cloves. The best way to peel the garlic is just to slam it down. Slam it. Slam it. Okay. And then you just peel it off. That's right. Peel everything off. Take off the little shell. I'm going to just chop off a little bit of that- The excess on the end. The little hard pieces. Yep. How did you learn about this chimichurri? Chimichurri, actually I learned it on TV. Then I tried it at home, and it was really good with steaks. Any kind of red meat. Yeah? It really just brings out that flavor. We've got five crushed cloves of garlic, we're just going to put right into the blender. All right. Just like that, huh? Watch this. Magic. Then if things stick to the side a little bit what you want to do is use a spatula and just kind of scrape the sides. Get it down there? Yep. Smell that. Jason Glover is the original Dad That Cooks and owns and operates Splash Digital Media. As a Dad and the primary cook for his family, he conceived DTC through his experiences and by talking with other Dads. When fellow Dads shared with Jason they’d love to learn from his own first-hand kitchen experiences, the idea for DTC was born. As the idea continued to keep him up at night he thought, why not leverage his film and video production and comedy background with his love of cooking for his family to become the host of DTC.
