Lamb Loin Chops

Loin lamb chops are simply delicious

To me they are like these little mini T-Bone steaks that just have so much flavor

Now originally, my wife was not a fan of lamb and it was this recipe that changed her mind

It is a simple dish that will make a lamb lover out of almost anyone!

I’m starting with a pack of 12 loin lamb chops

Aren’t they beautiful…  🙂

Now even though the butcher did a fine job trimming them, I’m going to cut off some of the excess fat

Once trimmed drizzle them with some extra virgin olive oil and rub it in

Now for the seasonings

I like to use kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

I also love the way coriander tastes with lamb so I’m using 1 teaspoon that I will grind in a mortar and pestle, plus 1 sprig of fresh rosemary

Remove the rosemary leaves and chop them, discard the stem

Sprinkle the chops with half the seasonings and herbs

Preheat the oven to 350 F

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in an oven proof pan over medium high heat

Once the oil is lightly smoking add in the chops trying not to over crowd them

Sprinkle the other side with the rest of the seasonings and fresh herbs

Allow the lamb to sear for 3-4 minutes then flip

Place the whole pan in the oven and cook for another 10 minutes for around medium done

Take the pan out of the oven

Remove the lamb from the pan and set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes prior to serving

Place the pan with the meat juices back on a burner over medium heat and bring to a simmer scraping up the bottom of the pan with a whisk

Next we will need 1 cup of beef stock and 1 tablespoon of Gravy Master

Add in the stock and Gravy Master and whisk together

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes

In another pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter

Stir in around a 1/4 cup of flour and cook until it’s bubbly and starting to brown lightly

Whisk the roux mixture into the gravy and cook 1-2 minutes or until thickened slightly

Salt and pepper the gravy to taste

Gravy looks good!
