Lamb Chops

Rating 4-0 out of 5 - Most cooks definitely will make this recipe again

Recipe by  

This is just basic cuisine with extraordinary results. It doesn't have to be complicated to be tasty. Lamb chops are equally good whether grilled or barbequed, and the method is the same. (If you fancy a variation on the basic lamb chop, you can try our Seasoned Lamb Chops instead.)

If you feel that it's really too easy to have a recipe for simple lamb chops, please read my introduction. There, I say that the only assumptions I have made about you, the visitor to NeedaRecipe.com, is that you know what an egg is, and that you can tell the difference between the sharp end of a knife and the blunt end! Because of this, you may find some of the recipes a little elementary. If this is the case, don't worry because it means that you have a head start on some of your fellow site visitors. Even visitors who have some basic culinary skills will find that this site contains plenty of useful ideas and short cuts that they have not come across before.

PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for the GRILLING or BROILING of food. In most countries of the world, the term "grilling" refers to heat coming from above the food source. Significantly, in North America, it signifies heat from below the food (such as barbecuing). In the United States and Canada, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is termed broiling, and the pan that holds the food is usually called a broiler pan.


How to Cook Lamb Chops

  1. FOR GRILLED (BROILED) LAMB CHOP: Cut the butter into small pieces. Place the lamb on a grill pan (broiler pan), season with salt and freshly ground pepper and place a little butter on each. Grill (broil) on high heat for about 4-5 minutes then turn the cutlets over and place a little butter and seasoning on the reverse side. Continue to grill for another 4-5 minutes until cooked to your liking. If you like your lamb pink in the middle (as I do) you can adjust these times down a little.
  2. FOR FRIED LAMB CHOP: Melt the butter in a large frying pan (skillet). Season the lamb with salt and freshly ground pepper and cook on high heat for about 1 minute then turn the cutlets over and cook the reverse side for 1 minute before reducing the heat. (Cooking on high heat seals the flavour into the meat). Continue to cook at medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking. If you like your lamb pink in the middle (as I do) you can adjust these times down a little.
  3. Serve with Baked Potatoes and a little mint sauce.

Sometimes when lamb chops are bought from a butcher's shop, the outer skin of the animal is left on. This is not edible and needs to be trimmed off, leaving just a little soft fat around the outside.

Reviews of Lamb Chops

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again March 19 2015
Excellent! Everyone loved the lamb, my kids, 11&10 years old, included. They were licking the bones! And I loved how easy it was to prepare. Served it with sauteed potatoes and steamed green beans -- great combo and all done in under 10 minutes (well, I had left over baked the potatoes from day before so only had to peel and sautee them prior to serving).
