Basque’ing in Boise - How to Make a Spicy Lamb Grinder
How to Make a Spicy Lamb Grinder Sandwich
Katie Quinn recently made a trip to Boise, and here is her review on visiting Bar Gernika:
This Spicy Lamb Grinder Sandwich is THE sandwich to get if you're visiting Boise, Idaho. So I took my camera with me to find out why.
Bar Gernika is a popular Basque restaurant in Boise. Did you know that the largest concentration of Basque Americans is in the Boise, Idaho, area, where approximately 15,000 Basque Americans live?! No wonder this spicy lamb grinder is so amazing!
Here's how it's made:
Sautée sliced green bell peppers, sliced onions, sliced mushrooms. Then add pickled jalapeño. Slices of roasted leg of lamb are added with slices of pepper jack cheese on top. Cover to help melt the cheese. Slice a baguette horizontally and add all of the other ingredients in the baguette.
The croquettas and dipping sauce are a little more involved, but if you're so inspired, you should attempt to make those, too! (If you find a good recipe, please post it in the comments, I'd love to give them a try!)
Thanks, as always, for watching. Happy eating and #keepitquirky!
