  • 8 loin lamb chops 1 1/4" wide
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard dijon or whole grain
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon (any dried herb of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  1. Turn on air fryer to 390° to preheat.

  2. Into a small bowl place mustard, olive oil, tarragon and lemon juice and mix well.  

  3. Rinse and pat dry lamb chops with a paper towel.

  4. Brush mustard herb mixture over all sides of the lamb chops. 

  5. Place lamb chops into basket with some room in between.  You can do them in batches and keep on a plate covered with plastic wrap until all are finished.  Alternatively you can place in a 225° oven to keep warm.

  6. Cook for 15 minutes  for medium rare (turning at 8 minutes.)  You don't have to turn them but I like the even color it gets by moving them around.  

  7. You can use a thermometer to test for doneness.  The width of the chop used can alter the cooking times.  If you don't have a thermometer I use a knife to cut into one to test.

     Lamb Doneness temperatures:

    125 Rare

    145 Medium Rare

    155 Medium
