- Servings : 2
- Prep Time : 5m
- Cook Time : 10m
- Ready In : 15m
4 Lamb Loin or Forequarter chops
5g Rosemary finely chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil
Meat gravy (optional)
Mashed potatoes mixed in Pumpkin mash for serving (optional)
In a non-stick fry pan add the oil and place it on a moderate heat. In the meantime sprinkle the chops with the salt and pepper and rub the chopped rosemary into the chops. When the pan is hot cook the chops 5 minutes or longer on each side (see variation for further cooking times). When the chops are cooked to your liking then serve with Mashed potatoes, see CF 42/60 recipe from the previous page and add some cooked pumpkin to it if desired and serve alongside chops and some gravy and or salad as desired. Lamb chops are great when cooked as BBQ.
Variations and My Story
Lamb Forequarters take much longer to cook than the Loin chops. Stephen doesn’t like rare or medium cooked meat. Lamb forequarter cooked at my place doesn’t take too long because I usually place a cover/lid on the pan during cooking to create steam and then any left-over juices/liquid are used in making the gravy. Steam cooks food faster than you would imagine so whenever you’re short of time use this method. Remember too that every piece of cut meat may be of a different thickness, the thicker the cut the longer the cooking time will be so adjust cooking time accordingly.
Lamb Loin chops are a better cut of meat. So use it for this recipe and cook it for shorter time or without the Cover/lid on. Once the meat is cooked you may drizzle it with olive oil before serving. Do not throw away any pan juices, either serve it over the meat as it is or by reducing it in the pan over high temperature first if needed, or simply add to the pan some stock and cornflour to thicken and check the seasoning before serving over mash and the lamb chops.
Take my previous recipe for making the mash and if desired also cook some pumpkin or sweet potato in salted water and mash it with the potatoes and serve as desired or as seen in the picture. Enjoy
