Pan-Seared Lamb Chops Recipe

A trio of garlic, rosemary and mint enhances the flavor of these chops, along with the luxuriously flavorful sauce on top.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh mint
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 lamb loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  • 1. Combine the first five ingredients; rub over chops. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chops in butter and oil for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. Add wine to the same skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in cream; cook for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with chops. Yield: 2 servings.
