I have always been a fan of lamb chops! I consider them to be more of a “treat” than a big steak or even a lobster. For nearly 20 years, I have had the pleasure of eating my friend Helena’s lamb chops. They are the BEST I have ever had…even better than many I’ve tried at great restaurants. I am so excited to bring you Helena’s famous lamb chops today. We spent the afternoon cooking together this summer and she showed me how easy it is to make her delicious chops. I am ecstatic to now have her “secret” recipe and to be able to share it with all of you. What I learned is that her secret is not really a secret at all. Simplicity and top quality meat are what she credits to making them so delicious…a little butter, oregano, lemon pepper, salt and pepper go a long way too! Other than that, if you cook them like we show in the video, you’re going to have a lunch or dinner that you and your friends and family will love.
I hope you’ll try out Helena’s lamb chop recipe (below) and let me know what you think. Also, don’t forget to post your LivCooks creations with #LivCooks. I can’t wait to see you own your lamb chops. Enjoy!
2 racks of lamb, cut into single chops
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons, butter
2 tablespoons dry oregano
2 tablespoons lemon pepper
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wash and thoroughly dry the lamb chops. Evenly sprinkle the lemon pepper and the dry oregano on both sides of each lamb chop. Heat a heavy pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, place all of the lamb chops fat side down. Let the fat soften and render down. Once there is a crust on the fat side of the lamb chops, add the olive oil. Reduce to medium-low heat. Rotate the chops on one side and cook for two minutes, then turn them on the other side and cook for another two minutes. Add the butter to the pan and continue to cook the lamb chops. Add the lemon juice. Cook for one more minute. Serve on a platter and drizzle the remaining sauce from the pan on top of the lamb chops. Enjoy!
