Rosemary Garlic Frozen Lamb Chops
Frozen Lamb Chops Recipes
- Frozen lamb chops
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Thaw the Lamb Chops: Ideally, you should thaw the lamb chops in the refrigerator overnight. If you’re short on time, you can use the defrost function on your microwave or place the chops in a sealed plastic bag and submerge them in cold water until thawed. Make sure to pat them dry with paper towels before cooking.
- Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Season the Chops: In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. Coat the thawed lamb chops with this mixture, ensuring they are evenly seasoned.
- Sear the Chops: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add a bit of olive oil. Sear the lamb chops for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until they develop a nice brown crust. This step helps lock in the juices and flavors.
- Transfer to Oven: Place the seared lamb chops on a baking sheet or in an oven-safe skillet and transfer them to the preheated oven. Cook for about 8-10 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust the time according to your preferred level of doneness. If you have a meat thermometer, the internal temperature should read 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare, 160°F (71°C) for medium, and 170°F (77°C) for well-done.
- Rest and Serve: Once the lamb chops are cooked to your desired level, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute within the meat, resulting in a tender and juicy chop. Serve the lamb chops with your choice of side dishes, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
Remember that cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the lamb chops and your oven, so it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on them as they cook. Enjoy your delicious rosemary garlic lamb chops!
