 RECIPE: Lamb Chops Sizzled with Garlic

Ingredients

  • Eight 1/2-inch-thick lamb loin chops (about 2 pounds), fatty tips trimmed

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • Pinch of dried thyme

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 10 small garlic cloves, halved

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley

  • Pinch of crushed red pepper

How to Make It

Step 1

   

Season the lamb with salt and pepper and sprinkle lightly with thyme. In a very large skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the lamb chops and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until the chops are browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn the chops and garlic and cook until the chops are browned, about 2 minutes longer for medium meat. Transfer the chops to plates, leaving the garlic in the skillet.

 

Step 2

   

Add the water, lemon juice, parsley and crushed red pepper to the pan and cook, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom, until sizzling, about 1 minute. Pour the garlic and pan sauce over the lamb chops and serve immediately.
