4 servings (serving size: 2 chops, 3/4 cup couscous, and about 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Five-spice powder is a pungent blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. Add a side of steamed green beans.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add couscous to pan. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Step 2

Combine hoisin and next 4 ingredients (through five-spice powder) in a small bowl. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle pepper and salt over lamb. Add lamb to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Add hoisin mixture to pan; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated, turning to coat lamb. Spoon sauce over lamb; serve with couscous.

Quick, easy and delicious. I seasoned the lamb with the salt, pepper, and five spice instead of putting the five spice in the sauce. DH wasn't a big fan of the couscous but we all loved the sauce. Steamed green beans completed the dish.

We used unseasoned rice vinegar - it was still great! Recipe was delicious, the sauce was very flavorful.
