2 tablespoons fresh or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried mint flakes
4 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
4 (4-ounce) lean lamb loin chops
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, and stir well. Trim fat from lamb, and place chops on a broiler pan. Broil 5 minutes on each side. Brush mustard mixture over chops. Broil chops 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with mustard mixture.
This is outstanding! The taste of the mint with the mustard is amazing, and compliments the flavor of the lamb without obscuring it (I used mint sauce). I let the lamb sit in the fridge for about 2 hours after rubbing it with about 1/2 the honey/dijon mixture. I basted with the rest of the mix while it was cooking. Will defintiely be making this again!
This recipe is a regular in our household, for a year I made it without the mint...tasted great.
Get the mint, I found some mint flakes by McCormick at the grocery store, it turns this recipe into a gourmet one, and I rarely have it without them now.
I use it on pork chops and chicken as well, and it is especially good in the summer with fresh rosemary and mint on my patio!
