How To Make Lamb Chops with Rosemary and Garlic
These lamb chops are a classy and elegant meal that’s perfect for a special dinner. They’re also flavored simply with just rosemary, garlic, and olive oil.
In a small bowl, mix the rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil together. Coat the lamb chops with the mixture, massaging it into the meat. If working with double rib chops, cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes. If you are working with single rib chops, and you want the result to be rare, let the chops sit in the rub in the refrigerator, do not let come to room temp or the thin ribs will easily overcook when you sear them in the next step. You can also marinate the chops in the fridge for up to 24 hours. (Allow double rib chops to stand at room temperature 30 to 40 minutes before cooking.)
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in an oven-proof sauté pan over high heat. When the oil is shimmering hot, sear the chops.
Sear double rib chops on all sides about 2 to 3 minutes per side. If working with single rib chops, sear only on two sides, and only a minute (or less) on each side for rare or medium rare.
For chops that more cooked, put them in a 400 degrees F oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or keep them in the hot pan, lower the heat to warm, and cover the pan for a few minutes.
When done, remove the chops from the pan, cover with foil and let rest 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
