I quickly fell in love with the wonderfully flavorful crust of these Lamb Chops with Garlic & Herbs. Marinated in a simple mixture of garlic, rosemary, thyme, and olive oil and pan-seared to perfection – these juicy and tender lamb chops make a stunning quick meal for everybody.
2 lbs lamb chops, cut ¾-inch thick, 4 pieces
kosher salt, for seasoning
black pepper, for seasoning
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp chopped rosemary
2 tsp chopped thyme
½ tsp chopped parsley
¼ c. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
How to make Lamb Chops with Garlic & Herbs
Step 1: Generously season the entire lamb chop with salt and pepper.
Step 2: In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and 2 tbsp olive oil.
Step 3: On the entire lam chops, rub the paste and allow the chops to marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
Step 4: In a 12-inch large frying pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the lamb chops and sear for about 2 to 3 minutes until the surface is brown.
Step 5: Turn on the other side and continue to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until the lamb chops internal temperature reads 125 degrees F or 51 degrees C for medium-rare. And for medium, it should be 135 degrees F or 57 degrees C.
Step 6: Before serving, allow the lamb chops for approximately 10 minutes.
If not planning to cook the lamb chops within an hour of marinating, place them in the fridge to further marinate up to 24 hours.
