DH and I made these lamb chops last night for dinner. We really enjoyed them. The chops were very flavorful and required minimal prep. The only modification I made to the chops was to use freshly chopped garlic. I would definitely make these chops again. The middle eastern rice was complimentary to the lamb chops. Mine came out a little bit dry as I followed the directions on my rice cooker (using basmati), and it required less water than the 3 cups you listed. Perhaps if I used 3 cups as you stated it would have been more moist. The flavor, however, was good and I added a little olive oil to moisten it up. Also, I had to substitute dark raisins for golden as I didn't have any on hand. I really enjoyed the toasted pine nuts in the rice dish. Defintely a different way of making rice than I am used to. I would certainly make this dish again, with and without the rice. I also served with green beans. Thanks, Alan!
I cooked this dish for unexpected guests very quick and I served it with a tomatoes, cucumber an yoghurt dip on the side, my guests thought I spent hours preparing wonderful dish thankyou
