Lamb with Raspberry Sauce Recipe

Scott Beatrice of Lakeland, Florida dresses up lamb chops with a wonderful fruity sauce. "I enjoy cooking and surprising my wife, Chrissy, with creative dishes like this one," says Scott.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peeled tart apple
  • 2 tablespoons white grape juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 lamb loin chops (1 to 1-1/2 inches thick and 6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. Place raspberries in a blender; cover and process until pureed. Strain and discard seeds; transfer puree to a small saucepan. Stir in the cucumber, apple, grape juice and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes or until cucumber and apple are tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute garlic in oil until tender. Add lamb chops. Cook, uncovered, for 7-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Serve with raspberry sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
