Herbed Lamb Chops
I don’t know why we don’t eat lamb more often. It’s juicy and delicious, and little chops are quick and easy to make. But for whatever reason, I never seem to think of it until I see all the Easter lamb recipes on the Internet.
I’ve not yet made a leg of lamb, but I’ve done chops a couple of times. Don’t wait for a special occasion to make these – they grill (or broil) up in a snap. Pair with mashed potatoes as I did for an indulgent treat, or even just a simple salad or some steamed veggies for a super quick, easy and healthy weeknight meal.
- 32 ounces lamb loin chops (8 4-oz chops), trimmed
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 1 medium lemon
Preheat oven to 400. Heat an oven safe grill pan over medium high heat.
Lightly spray lamb chops with cooking spray, then season with salt and pepper, fresh herbs and minced garlic. Drizzle with lemon juice.
Spray grill pan with cooking spray. Lay chops seasoned side down on grill pan. Immediately spray and season other side of chops. Grill for approximately 4 minutes.
Flip chops and sear briefly, then put entire pan into the oven for approximately 5 minutes for medium rare or to desired doneness.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
