Dixie Lamb Chops

These saucy lamb chops may seem fancy, but mine work for special occasions as well as busy evenings. We love them with spinach salad and good bread. —Barbara Burge, Los Gatos, CA

    I don't know whether it was the molasses or the steak sauce, but we did not care for the flavors in this dish. Instead of covering the lamb with the sauce halfway through cooking, I poured the sauce around the chops. It didn't help: we could barely taste the lamb. I won't be making this again.
