Loin Chops Sizzled With Garlic

Ingredients

  • Eight 1/2-inch-thick lamb loin chops (about 2 pounds), fatty tips trimmed
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch of dried thyme
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 small garlic cloves, halved
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley

How to Make It

Step 1

Season the lamb with salt and pepper and sprinkle lightly with thyme. In a very large skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the lamb chops and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until the chops are browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn the chops and garlic and cook until the chops are browned, about 2 minutes longer for medium meat. Transfer the chops to plates, leaving the garlic in the skillet.

Step 2

Add the water, lemon juice, parsley and crushed red pepper to the pan and cook, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom, until sizzling, about 1 minute. Pour the garlic and pan sauce over the lamb chops and serve immediately.
