5 MINUTE LAMB CHOPS

The gamey smell of lamb can be a big turnoff but adding two spices, transforms it into deliciousness. Since they’re small, they cook quickly on a hot pan on a high flame.

INGREDIENTS:

  • lamb chops
  • dried sage
  • dried thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Heat up a pan (high flame for about 30-60 seconds).
  2. Season one side of lamb chops with salt, pepper, sage & thyme.
  3. Using tongs, place chops (seasoned side down) on the hot pan.
  4. Season other side of chops with salt, pepper, sage & thyme.
  5. Once the bottom has a good sear (about 1-2 minutes, depending on thickness), flip and sear on other side.
  6. Sear both edges of the chops (30-60 seconds), especially where the bones are cut.
