Broiled Lamb Chops

Lamb chops are the most tender of the lamb cuts so they are a rare occasion that can be enjoyed with hot, fast cooking. We like a medium rare lamb chop, but as always cook longer for more well-done fare.

Brush lamb chops with olive oil, including the fat. Dice up some garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and a seasoning of your choice. We especially like rosemary and minced garlic.

Set the broiler on high and broil for 5 minutes on each side. This will give you medium rare chops.

Let rest before serving.

Don’t forget to enjoy the little sliver of fat. That’s where all the flavor is! See if you can taste a hint of the minty and aromatic herbs our lambs nibble on underneath the oaks.
