Greek Lamb Chops

Once you try these lamb chops, you will never look back! Or spend money any where else when you can save a buck and make them right at home.

Preparation time:35minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Total: 50minutes

Serves:4

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup lemon juice)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano preferably Greek, or 1/2 cup chopped fresh
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 lamb chops 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for cooking

How To Prepare

    1. Using paper towels, pat dry chops and discard any shards or bone fragments.
    2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small jug or bowl.
    3. Arrange lamb chops in a large baking dish or on a large plate, and pour the marinade all over the lamb, rubbing it into the meat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for half an hour, or for a deeper flavour, marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning the chops from time to time (before cooking, let lamb chops sit at room temp 30 minutes).
    4. Heat oil in a pan (cast iron preferably or grill plates) over high heat until just starting to smoke. Fry or grill lamb in 2 batches for 3-4 minutes each side, depending on thickness until done to your liking. (Usually, at 3 minutes per side they are medium, and at 4 minutes they are medium-well.)
    5. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
    6. Sprinkle with a little extra dried oregano for added flavour and a little extra lemon juice (optional).

Optional:

  • For left over marinade: reduce heat down to medium-low leaving any leftover drippings in the pan. When pan has lowered in heat, pour in the leftover marinade along with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1/4 cup beef broth. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for at least 5 minutes. Stir in a tablespoon of lemon juice and serve with the lamb.
