Yield
4 servings (serving size: 2 lamb chops and 3 tablespoons glaze)

Cherry preserves and balsamic vinegar combine for a quick, tasty glaze. Pair with couscous to soak up any extra pan sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Combine rosemary, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl, stirring well. Rub spice mixture evenly over both sides of lamb. Add lamb to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side. Remove lamb from pan. Wipe pan clean with paper towels.

Step 2

Return pan to medium heat; recoat with cooking spray. Add garlic to pan; cook 30 seconds. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and broth; cook 1 minute, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in preserves and vinegar; cook 3 minutes or until slightly thick. Return lamb to pan; turn to coat. Cook 1 minute or until desired degree of doneness. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.

I have made this dish several times over the years.  Tonight I found out that I didn't have any cherry preserves, so I substituted cranberry.  So yummy.  Don't have rosemary?  Try thyme.   Cooking times vary so watch the chops closely.  Costco lamb chops are thick; tonight I seared them 5-6 minutes per side then about 5 more minutes in the sauce.  Don't forget to have a great pinot noir with this dish.  It was made for red wine.  Keeping this recipe for the ages.

Our chops were pretty thick, so cooked 5 min per side including bone and edges to get to medium. Used fresh rosemary, otherwise made to recipe. Served with couscous and steamed green beans. Gorgeous on the plate. Sauce & lamb assertively flavored but very good.

I have made this recipe over and over since it first appeared in Food Made Fast column in Cooking Light. Excellent! I am not a fan of lamb, so I add in a pork chop (boneless or not) for myself. A side of wild rice or cous cous along with broccoli pares well. Mmmm! is what I hear from everyone everytime.
