  • 1 lb lamb chops/steaks
  • 2 TB fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 – 4 TB olive oil, divided
  1. In a small bowl, mix the rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic with 2 TB of olive oil.
  2. Rub the mixture onto the lamb, massaging it in. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30-45 minutes.
  3. If you’re cooking the lamb on the stove, heat 2 TB of oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Alternately, you can cook them on the grill with high heat. Cook 2 minutes on each side for rare, or 3 minutes per side for medium rare.
  4. Remove from pan (or grill) to a room temperature plate, cover, and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
