Greek Style Lamb Chops on a plate

We love lamb chops in our family, they cook up quickly, come in nice portion sizes and are super flavorful and juicy.  When the weather is nice I grill them (see these No fail grilled lamb chops) but when the weather is on the cooler side I make them  These Greek-style lamb chops which made on the stove-top.

How do you pick a good lamb chop?

Select lamb chops that have equal sides of meat on each side of the bone, like a mini T-bone steak.  You want the loin side to be as large as you can find.  You can see in this photo all sorts of different sizes of the loin side (left)

Lamb tends to be very tender, but you do want to have some marbling that you can also see in the photo below.

How do you prepare/cook Loin Lamb Chops?

Make sure to season all sides edges, not just the top and bottom. This gives you a great Mediterranean flavor in each and every bite.

Browning all of the edges, not just the top and bottom yields great results.  You’ll want to get a deep brown crust on all sides, even on the top where it’s just the bone.  This allows for even cooking and allows for the chop to be warmed throughout!

Cooking Mediterranean Spiced marinade on lamb cooking

This Greek Style Loin Lamb Chop Recipe is very easy to make.  You season and let them marinate for about 15 minutes then you can cook them in a sauce or grill pan in less than 15 minutes.

Each bite will be juicy on the inside and a seared crust on each edge.  The mustard adds a slight tang and also holds all of the spices to the meat so every forkful is full of flavor!
