Description

Quick and easy, these lamb chops are made in the broiler in minutes and made with a mint chimichurri sauce for added tenderness and flavor!


Ingredients

Units Scale

For the Mint Chimichurri Marinade:

  • 1 1/2 cups (1 bunch) flat-leaf parsley, torn
  • 1 cup mint leaves with the stem
  • 2 teaspoons serrano or jalapeno pepper (1/2 a pepper with or without the seeds)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon honey or agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 45 bone-in lamb chops (1 1/2 to 2 inches thick) *See notes
  • Fresh mint for garnish (if desired).

Instructions

  1. Make the mint chimichurri sauce by placing the parsley, mint, pepper, garlic, lime, and honey into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until well combined.  

Notes

  • For thinner chops, it is best to trim most of the fat around the border, still allowing  ¼-inch of the fat (or so) to remain.
  • Broiling times will vary based on thickness of chops.  If using loin chops instead of rib chops, broil 1-2 minutes more minutes on each side. Or until desired doneness.
  • Degree of doneness – Between 120°F to 125°F for rare chops, 135°F to 145°F for medium-rare chops, or 160°F to 170°F for chops that are well done. Chops should be pulled from the heat once 5-10 °F below the desired internal temperature. This is because the chops will continue to cook while resting.
