This recipe is easy to make and a little different from your usual lamb recipes. Buy chops that have the filet attached, not shoulder chops. They should be apprx 1" thick. Fry for 4 minutes each side for slightly pink. Longer if you want well done. Make the sauce early in the day (or the day before) and reheat while you are cooking the chops. Dinner will be on the table in a few minutes. The sauce is great over your veggies and new potatoes.

I loved the sauce in this! I just don`t understand the day before or early in the day to make it? It can be made right before frying the chops or better yet cook the chops then remove the chops to a plate and keep warm while making the sauce in the pan the chops were made. deglazing all the goodness from the meat enhancing the sauce even more. This did serve 4 of us. Thanks and good luck!
