The Papa’s Kitchen
Lamb Chops Indoors
2 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon of fresh thyme
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons of EVOO
6 Lamb chops, about ¾ inch thick
In your food processor add garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne, and salt. Pulse until thoroughly combined. Pour in the olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops and allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Remove from the refrigerator and allow the chops to come to room temperature which will take about 20-30 minutes.
Heat a grill pan over high heat until almost smoking (I used our amazing smokeless grill for this in the video but you could easily use a cast iron skillet), then add the chops and sear for about 2-3 minutes. Flip the chops over and cook for another 3 minutes for medium-rare, and 4 minutes for medium. If you want them any more than that – you’re on your own.
I served these with some melting potatoes and a salad on the side.
