In this very simple recipe, the spices, mint, garlic, and oil form a crust that helps seal in the lamb’s juices. Sautéed carrots and roasted potatoes would be nice on the side.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 (1- to 1 1/2-inch-thick) lamb loin chops (about 5 ounces each), trimmed
  • Fresh mint sprigs

Preparation

Place olive oil, chopped fresh mint, minced garlic, salt, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in small bowl; mix well. Spread herb mixture over both sides of lamb chops. Transfer chops to broiler pan. Let stand 10 minutes.

Preheat broiler. Broil chops until brown and crusty, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Arrange chops on platter, garnish with fresh mint sprigs, and serve.
