Lamb Loin Chops with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and a Mustard Mint Sauce

Have I got a recipe for all you lamb lovers!  

Beckoning Spring at any cost, I thought a lamb recipe was in order to get us all geared up for birds chirping and tree blossoms blooming.

These tender, juicy lamb loin chops are perfect served alongside oven roasted brussels sprouts and dressed with a tangy mustard mint sauce.  

Is your mouth watering yet?

 

I know, I know! It’s hard not to drool.  

Seared in a super hot cast iron skillet, this dish only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. How’s that for a quick weeknight meal?  

 

These lamb loin chops were plump, thick and begging for a liberal dusting of salt and pepper.  

 

I prepped the brussels sprouts by slicing them in half and adding a 1/2 cup of sliced leeks. Then I tossed it all with olive oil, salt and pepper and put it in a 450 degree oven for about 15 minutes.  

 

I seared the lamb chops in a super hot cast iron skillet coated in olive oil for about 3 minutes per side. Then, I added butter to the pan and deglazed with a garlicky thyme beef broth and cooked just about one minute more. Allowing the chops to rest will allow them to continue to cook.  

 

Once I served them up, I topped the chop with a healthy smothering of Mustard Mint Sauce. Somebody help me!

 

If this dish doesn’t make you wish for spring, I don’t know what will…

 

Serve it up this week or keep it in the menu arsenal for Easter! I’m positive it will be a hit!
