Instructions Checklist
  • Brush lamb chops with 1 tablespoon olive oil; season with rosemary, salt, and pepper. Marinate in the refrigerator, 15 minutes to 2 hours.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Cook lamb chops until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Combine mint leaves, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a blender; blend until smooth. Drizzle over lamb chops.

Cook's Note:

If marinating lamb chops for 2 hours, remove them from the refrigerator 10 minutes before you want to cook them.

Excellent! This was super simple and full of flavor. I'm typically not a big mint fan but it goes nicely with the lamb and rosemary in this recipe. For the sauce be sure to use the extra virgin olive oil as called for. It makes a big difference in the end flavor. Read More

I made this for a rack of lamb with 8 baby chops. I just added about 5-6 garlic cloves minced and used the juice of a whole lemon. I roasted in the oven on at 375 on convection roast until the thermometer came out to 160. Was perfect! Read More
