This recipe was one of the five meals my mom had in her heavy weeknight rotation to feed our family of six.

Crusty with grilled bits of onion, garlic and lemon zest, these chops were my first experience with goat in Italy. 

Many Argentine cooks keep a jar of homemade chimichurri sauce in the fridge (it keeps for several weeks) to either marinate or season cooked meats throughout the week

For those days when you don't want to tend a fire, this is one utterly delicious oven version that will stand up to smoke-roasted ribs any day. 

Bowls of rice, the sauce, maybe a sesame cucumber salad, and everyone is licking their fingers with pleasure.
