Total Time
15 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 2 lamb chops and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Give lamb chops a Greek twist with the addition of fresh oregano and a minty yogurt sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle lamb with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; rub with oregano mixture. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add lamb, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Combine yogurt and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve sauce with lamb.

Chef's Notes

If you have trouble finding the right size lamb loin chops, ask the butcher to cut them to the size you need. For a thicker sauce, use Greek-style yogurt.

4.5 stars.  I grilled the chops.  Excellent dinner; served with Mediterranean couscous and a salad.  Super easy and fast.

I often have pork chops on hand. I wonder how this would work if I used them instead of lamb.

So good. The sauce is tasty but the lamb chops themselves are so delicious I don't think you really need it. If I were to make this for a dinner party I would make the sauce for a fancy factor. Next time I make it just for my family I will probably skip it.

Loved this recipe. Extremely easy to prepare and full of fresh ingredients. Can also adjust citrus to lime and and I added the zest for a more punch and flavor. I will definately make again.

Perfect. Served with minted couscous and a greek salad. This will be made again. I added half cup white wine to the drippings and a couple of TBs butter for a quick sauce over the top. Added extra lemon to the yogurt sauce. It was all yummy.

Supereasy, great for weeknight supper. Made to recipe except let chops marinate about 20-30 min while we prepped the rest of the meal. Served with couscous and a chopped salad with non-fat Greek dressing. Very good.

Very simple, fast and tasty lamb recipe. I used dried oregano and Greek yogurt. My chops were a little thick, so I did need to finish them in the oven after searing. Served with a side salad. I would make these again and would feel comfortable serving them to guests.

Sooo good! I made 4 chops for the 2 of us, but made the full amount of sauce, and seasoning for the lamb, adding a couple tablespoons of EVOO. After I spooned out enough for the lamb, I boiled and added cut up fingerling potatoes to make Greek potato salad. After sauteing the lamb (3 min per side was perfect), I chopped up cabbage (baby savoy, but you could use any green) and sauteed it in the lamb drippings, with the garlic and oregano that fell off. Then, after feasting, I added the remaining yogurt sauce (I used Greek yogurt) to the remaining potato salad. I'll be the envy of the office at lunchtime tomorrow, too bad there's no leftover lamb ;-)
