Lamb Chops With Balsamic-Herb Glaze

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

"Good things come in small packages" and that applies in a sense to recipes with very few ingredients. Original recipe specified rosemary but I leave it up to you to decide. Boiling the pan juices creates a delectable sweet-glossy glaze. Use a good quality balsamic vinegar, please! From Cooking Pleasures.

Tasty but I had trouble with the cooking method. Too cooked on the outside and raw in the middle. I had to put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Made for CQ 14.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle lamb chops with salt, pepper and most of the fresh herb of choice. Heat a large, castiron skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  2. Add the lamb chops, cook for 5 minutes then reduce heat to medium/low and cook other side of chops for another to 5-6 minutes. (This is for medium doneness-adjust cooking time accordingly.).
  3. Transfer chops to serving plate. Tent with foil.
  4. Add the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to skillet; bringing to boil.
  5. Cook the sauce for approximately 1-2 minutes or until sauce thickens and reduces; scraping up the brown meat bits from bottom of skillet. Continue stirring until thickened.
  6. Pour glaze over chops. Garnish with the remaining minced herb.
