Recipe type: Main
Serves: 3 servings
  • 3 (1/4 pound) lamb chops
  • fresh ground kosher salt (to taste)
  • fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Olive oil (to taste)
  • 2 Tablespoons mint jelly
  • 1½ Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Large mint leaves, finely minced
  1. Place the broiler on high. Sprinkle each chop with fresh ground kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Drizzle olive oil over them and gently rub in. Put the lamb chops on a broiling pan and place approximately 4 inches from the heat. Cook for 5 minutes, turn the chops and cook for another 5 minutes. The chops should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  2. Take the chops out of the oven and set aside allowing the meat to rest while the mint sauce is prepared.
  3. Mint Sauce
  4. Take 2 tablespoons mint jelly and place in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add 1½ tablespoons butter and 2 large mint leaves, finely diced. Cook approximately 2 minutes or until the mixture has combined and come to a sauce-like texture. Additional butter can be added, if needed.
  5. Drizzle the mint sauce over the lamb chops right before serving. Pair this with a side dish of mashed potatoes for a delicious meal. The mint sauce is so scrumptious you may find yourself drizzling some over the mashed potatoes as well.
