Sprinkle a generous amount of salt onto the lamb. Melt
in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook the lamb evenly, 2 to 3 minutes per side. The outside should be golden brown, and the inside still pink. Save the leftover juice in the pan.
Bring the chicken stock
to a simmer
in a large pot over medium heat, then add the bark and thyme. The bark should be placed on top of the thyme so that it is above the liquid. Now place the lamb
on top of the bark so it will be steamed and not submerged in the stock. Cover the pot and let the lamb steam, about 3 minutes. Add the thyme
flowers and bear's garlic. Cover and steam again, about 10 minutes, and then let it rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Slice the lamb evenly along each rib to make lamb chops. Place the ribs on plates with dollops of Bear's Garlic Pesto
and pour a little bit of the leftover juice over the lamb. Garnish
with primrose flowers.
