Herb Marinated Lamb Chops
Juicy succulent lamb chops in a simple garlic and herb marinade – ready in minutes and perfect for date night!
  • 6 lamb chops , rib chops
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to fry

For the marinade

  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme , finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano , Greek oregano preferably
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary , finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp fresh mint , finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • lemon wedges to serve
  1. Season your chops liberally with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.
  2. Prepare the marinade: combine the thyme, oregano, rosemary, mint, garlic and olive oil in a small bowl.
  3. Rub the marinade over the lamb, massaging it into the meat, and leave for up to 20 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Heat a large skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Add the olive oil and heat until it slides easily around the skillet.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-high and add the chops. Sear until they are well browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. They should be cooked medium rare 57°C (135°F) if checked with a meat thermometer.
  6. Flip the chops over and cook for another 3-5 minutes (depending on thickness).
  7. Transfer the chopes to a warm plate and leave them to rest for 5 minutes. This will allow the proteins in the meat to relax for maximum juiciness!
  8. Serve with lemon wedges on the side and a green salad or choose from your favourite side dishes.
