My go-to for date nights! Easy Herb-Marinated Lamb Chops takes a heartbeat to make. Juicy, tender lamb chops marinated in garlic and herb marinade and baked to perfection. Anyone can pull this off!
6 lamb chops, rib chops
Salt and pepper to season
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil to fry
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried oregano, Greek oregano preferably
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
½ tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
lemon wedges to serve
How to make Herb Marinated Lamb Chops:
Step 1: Season each chop with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.
Step 2: In a small mixing bowl, add the oregano, rosemary, garlic, mint, thyme, and olive oil. Stir until well mixed.
Step 3: Rub the lamb with the marinade. Make sure to massage the lamb, then allow it to sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
Step 4: Place a large skillet over the stove and turn the heat to high.
Step 5: Add olive oil and allow it to become very hot.
Step 6: Turn down the heat to about medium-high, then add the marinated chops. Sear each side for 3 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 135 degrees F or 57 degrees C.
Step 7: Place the chops on a clean plate and allow them to rest for about 5 minutes.
Step 8: Serve with your favourite side dishes. Enjoy!
You can cook these chops on the grill.
Preheat the grill to medium heat, then grill the chops for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Remove from the grill and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
