My Honey Balsamic Lamb chops with Roasted Potatoes is a great meal to add to your Easter dinner table.
Ingredients
  • For Potatoes:
  • 1 ½ lbs. red and white potatoes, sliced
  • 4 rosemary sprig leaves
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large lemon, sliced thinly
  • For lamb chops
  • 6 lean lamb chops, frenched
  • 1 rosemary sprig leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon pure honey (optional)
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475°F and place sliced potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil paper. Toss potato slices with rosemary leaves, olive oil, garlic, salt and paper. When all the seasonings are incorporated, top potatoes with lemon slices. This will prevent the potatoes from burning and will also add more flavor to the potatoes.
  2. Place the potatoes in the oven on the middle rack and roast for 15 minutes. When ready, remove potatoes from the oven and cover the baking sheet with foil paper to keep the potatoes warm.
  3. Place the lamb chops in a ziplock bag. Add rosemary, thyme, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Seal and shake the ziplock bag until the lamb chops are evenly coated with the seasonings.
  4. Place a skillet or grill pan over high heat. Once the pan is heated, add lamb chops and cook each side for 3 ½ minutes for medium rare or to your desired doneness.
  5. Serve your lamb chops and potatoes with your choice of salad.
Notes
When making the lamb chops, avoid marinating them with the balsamic vinegar for an extended period of time. Marinating any meat in balsamic vinegar or any other sugar based marinades causes the sugar to crystallize on the meat. Thus, causing the meat to burn. The lamb chops should be put on the grill or sauté pan right way.
