Quick Thyme Lamb Chops

Thyme Lamb Chops

If you have a lamb rack sitting in your fridge, and a hungry family sitting at a table demanding to be fed, don’t fret—you can fix a super easy quick meal with lamb chops. Meat lovers love lamb chops. When the lamb is perfumed with thyme, it becomes extra delicious.

Notice that no marinating is required in this recipe. The key is to use good quality lamb chops and very fragrant dried thyme (mine came from Azerbaijan; so aromatic!). You can fry the chops in a little bit of butter (I prefer clarified butter for deeper flavor) or grill them on a lightly greased indoor grill. Your choice. You’ll enjoy the chops either way.

Dried Thyme

Quick Thyme Lamb Chops

Serves about 4


1 lamb rack
Ground black pepper
A few tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (ideally, clarified)


Divide the lamb rack into chops. Place each chop on a wooden cutting board and pound with a meat pounder until it is about 1/2-inch (12-mm).

Sprinkle the chops on both sides with salt and pepper to taste. Crush the dried thyme leaves with your hand and sprinkle on the chops, too.

Melt the butter in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Fry the chops on both sides, about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. (Alternatively, you can grease the plate of an indoor home grill and grill the chops.) Serve  immediately, with a side dish of your choice.
