Slow Cook Lamb Chops
This is my favorite recipe for lamb chops. It's great for people who are trying lamb for the first time, since the meat turns out extra tender and tasty. I decided to wrap the chops in bacon because that's how I've always done venison. I think it really enhances the flavor. —Sandra McKenzie Braham, Minnesota
