Instructions

  1. Let the lamb chops come to room temperature before they are fried or grilled. Cold chops won't get a nice brown crust. If you make a few cuts into the fat, the chop won't curl up.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Fry in butter and some olive oil if you're using a frying pan. If you're grilling, brush on some olive oil onto the chops before placing them on the grill.
  4. Fry for 3–4 minutes, depending on how thick the chops are. Really thick chops will need a longer cooking time. However, it's OK for lamb to be a little pink inside.
  5. Serve with leafy greens, lemon wedges, and herb butter.

Tip

You can substitute pork or beef for the lamb.

    The sides suggested to me by the website were Turnip gratin, and Rutabaga wedges.

    The total recipe makes 4 servings so it's closer to 1oz.
