Dijon Lamb Loin Chops



My husband and sons love lamb, so I try to slip it into everyday dining whenever possible. Dijon Lamb Loin Chops are particularly delicious and a welcome change from chicken. The chops are seared over high heat and then tossed with a marinade made up of Dijon mustard, lemon, rosemary, garlic, and mustard. I then pop the lamb in the oven for a few minutes, and outcomes the most flavorful meal. The pan-searing can be done an hour in advance, so this dish is excellent for entertaining. Give it a try, and I'm sure you'll love it.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

Let's see what we need.


We're ready to cook.


Combine the marinade ingredients and set aside.


Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to a non-stick pan and sear the meat. You will likely have to do this in stages. Transfer the meat to a bowl and coat with the marinade. Transfer to a baking dish and place in a preheated 400-degree oven. Roast about 12 minutes until the desired doneness. Let rest a few minutes before serving.


It's ready! Dijon Lamb Loin Chops are so flavorful and delicious. Serve roasted potatoes and a salad on the side, and you have yourself a great meal.


Enjoy!
