For the Lamp Chops:

  • Place lamb chops in a shallow bowl. Add 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and the minced garlic. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Set aside and let marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • After the ribs have marinated, heat remaining tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. When the oil is shimmering, working in batches, sear the lamb chops in the pan until a deep golden brown crust has formed, about 2-3 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board or platter and let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Drizzle with Mint Chimichurri. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

For the Mint Chimichurri: This sauce is best served immediately; however, you can store it, covered on the countertop for about 2 days.
