Herb Crusted Lamb Chops Recipe

Lamb used to intimidate the heck out of me. I’m not entirely sure why, maybe because it was a meat that I just don’t remember either of my Grandmothers or Mama preparing that often. But let me tell you, if you are like me and have been a little leary about preparing delicious lamb at home, stop. You can do it.

This recipe for Herb Crusted Lamb Chops was inspired from a delicious meal I had in a restaurant a while back when we were traveling. I savored every bite of that lamb chop and was ready to get into the kitchen and develop my own version.

My herb crusted lamb chops are no longer just reserved for Sunday suppers either. I make such a simple recipe to prepare that I even make it on busy weeknights.

Every single bite is flavorful and delicious, tender and juicy.

I feel sure if my Grandmother knew how easy it was to prepare, she would have been making it all the time.

Here’s my Herb Crusted Lamb Chops recipe.

    Lamb is super expensive here too! My husband loves it and often orders it when we go out to eat, but I have never made it at home. Thanks for this beautiful recipe. It looks amazing…I’d better not show my hubby ; )

  5. Lana @ Never Enough Thyme says:

    These look absolutely delicious, Robyn! I love lamb and not afraid of cooking it at home, but my goodness the price right now! $16.99 a pound here for rack of lamb and the little chops. That makes it an occasional treat for us but always enjoyable.

      Whoa, that’s expensive! I picked up my lamb chops this week for a little over $6.00 for the pack of four.

  6. Jacqueline says:
