Slow-Cooked Lamb Chops Recipe

Chops are without a doubt the cut of lamb we like best. I usually simmer them on low for hours in a slow cooker. The aroma is irresistible, and they come out so tender they practically melt in your mouth!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 8 lamb loin chops (about 1-3/4 pounds)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • 1. Place onion in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine the oregano, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper; rub over the lamb chops. Place chops over onion. Top with garlic. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until the meat is tender. Yield: 4 servings.

"Just a question. Should we add any liquid to this recipe or will it make it's own gravy?"

"Delish! I had them in slow cooker for 7 hours. For the last 1 1/2 hours I added about 2 cups fresh tomatoes, in chunks (seeded), a can of quartered artichoke hearts (drained), and about half a cup pitted kalamata olives. Served with green lentils simmered with a clove (only one!) studded piece of onion and two bay leaves. Heaven! I made a sauce of plain Greek yogurt, chopped fresh mint and lemon zest. But forgot to use it. haha"

"The lambs were so tender. The meat just fell off from the bones. They taste great. The more it was good with mint julep jelly to spread on the cooked meat. Thanks TOH."

"I made this for my parents while they were visiting for the holidays. My Mum had never eaten lamb before and thought this was great. It really does melt in your mouth and my two toddler boys gobbled it up since it was so tender."
