Ingredients

  • 4 lamb chops
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves — minced
  • ½ tbsp fresh rosemary — chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley — chopped
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano

Instructions

  1. Remove loin chops from the fridge 30-40 minutes before cooking.
  2. Place them on a paper towel-lined cutting board and pat them dry with paper towels. Season well with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, add olive oil, garlic and all the herbs. Mix well to combine.
  4. In a freezer bag or silicone bag (this is my favourite one), add lamb chops, the herb marinade, close bag and swoosh around until the chops are well coated with the marinade.

  5. Heat a dry 12-inch cast iron skillet over a medium heat. In the skillet, place the chops narrow fat side down. You probably will need to use tongs to keep them balanced and to press the chops down so that the fat renders and turns crisp and brown. It’s about 2 minutes.
  6. Once the fat has melted into the pan, lay the chops flat on one of their sides. Cook for another 3 minutes, until browned, then turn and cook on the other side.
  7. Transfer the chops to a platter and garnish with more fresh herbs. Enjoy!
