These are my Mother's favorite! So easy and delicious, you will be making these any time you find beautiful loin lamb chops in the market. Check out the video for a complete how-to!
4 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, lightly crushed
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, lightly crushed
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
8 1 ¼-inchthick lamb loin chops
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl. Add lamb, turn and coat with mixture. Let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a very large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add lamb; cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven and roast lamb chops to desired doneness, about 9-11 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer lamb to platter, cover, and let rest 5 minutes before serving
