Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl or resealable bag, combine the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper (about 4 turns of the peppermill). Add the chops and marinate at least 30 minutes at room temperature. If marinating longer, refrigerate and bring back to room temperature before cooking.
  2. While the lamb is marinating, make the cream. In a small bowl combine the creme fraiche, green onion, dill, horseradish, lemon juice, remaining 1/4 tsp salt and a few more turns of the peppermill. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Place a nonstick, ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Remove chops from marinade and place in skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer pan to the oven and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chops this should yield a medium rare to medium doneness.
  5. Using an oven mitt, remove pan from oven, remove chops from pan to serving dish and tent with foil for a 3-5 minutes. The chops will continue to cook a bit while sitting.
  6. Serve with horseradish dill cream on the side.
