Commit this simple rub mixture to memory, and use it on pork chops, too. Serve with buttered pasta garnished with parsley.
1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 (4-ounce) lamb rib chops, trimmed
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients; rub over lamb. Spread garlic mixture evenly over chops. Place lamb on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
This was my first effort to cook lamb chops, and it turned out great !
I was making only 2 chops (eating solo...), so had ~ 8 oz total of chops, but halved (rather than quartered) the recipe for the rub. Also, I added a little melted butter and olive oil to the rub to help it spread onto the chops.
I used a digital thermometer, set to alarm at 135 degrees - it turned out great, though I think that it would have been better a bit lower - perhaps 130 degrees.
Terrific, and simple.
I love lamb chops this way. I make small crosshatch scoring on the chops before rubbing in the garlic and rosemary mix (I also add a little butter to the rub mix) and my preference for cooking them are on the barbie. They are finger licking good.
