Greek Lamb Chops

I made this delicious and easy meal recently, and we absolutely loved it!  We don't have lamb often, but this was such a treat, and I just had to share the recipe!
I kind of combined a few recipes, and came up with my own, but the yogurt mint sauce is Barefoot Contessa all the way :)

This would be a great meal for a fancy supper, or if you are hosting a get together for a few friends.  It will be sure to impress, and you'll be so shocked to see how easy it is!


1 16 oz rack of lamb chops
3/4 tsp dried rosemary
3/4 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp course salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Yogurt Mint Sauce:
3 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 tbsp minced fresh dill
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
5 oz greek yogurt
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


1. Prepare Yogurt Mint Sauce (directions below)
2. Once sauce has refrigerated, heat broiler.
3. Rub both sides of lamb chops with seasonings.
4. Place lamb on broiler pan; broil until chops are browned, turning once about 6 minutes per side.
5. Serve with sauce and enjoy!

Place the scallions, mint, dill, red pepper flakes, olive oil, and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor.  Puree until it is a course paste.  Add the yogurt, salt, and pepper, and pulse until combined. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours.

(I served mine with quinoa and these Brussels sprouts! Yum!)
