12 chops


  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 12 lamb chops

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • leaves from 1 celery stalk, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons salt

  • 1 cup water, or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Combine basil, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, and pepper in a bowl. Season one side of the lamb chops with 1/2 of the seasoning mixture.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat.

  3. Place each chop, seasoned-sides down, into the heated pan. Season the second side of the lamb chops with the remaining spice mix. Brown both sides quickly, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce the temperature to medium and add onions. Cook and stir until onions sweat and start to turn translucent, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add celery leaves and salt, and enough water to just cover the chops. Let simmer and reduce over medium heat until water has evaporated, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

  5. Serve family-style on a platter using the remaining reduction as a sauce. Sprinkle parsley on top.
