Just like a Greek restaurant or even better! Whether you decide to grill them or fry them in a cast iron skillet (or regular pan), these homemade Greek Lamb Chops are a family favourite! Once you try these you will never look back!
Juice of 1 lemon(about 1/4 cup lemon juice)
2tspdried oreganopreferably Greek, or 1/2 cup chopped fresh
Using paper towels, pat dry chops and discard any shards or bone fragments.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small jug or bowl.
Arrange lamb chops in a large baking dish or on a large plate, and pour the marinade all over the lamb, rubbing it into the meat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for half an hour, or for a deeper flavour, marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning the chops from time to time (before cooking, let lamb chops sit at room temp 30 minutes).
Heat oil in a pan (cast iron preferably or grill plates) over high heat until just starting to smoke. Fry or grill lamb in 2 batches for 3-4 minutes each side, depending on thickness until done to your liking. (Usually, at 3 minutes per side they are medium, and at 4 minutes they are medium-well.)
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.Sprinkle with a little extra dried oregano for added flavour and a little extra lemon juice (optional).
For left over marinade: reduce heat down to medium-low leaving any leftover drippings in the pan. When pan has lowered in heat, pour in the leftover marinade along with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1/4 cup beef broth. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for at least 5 minutes. Stir in a tablespoon of lemon juice and serve with the lamb.
