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

Have I got a Lamb Loin Chops recipe for all of you Lamb Lovers!

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.  

Sliced Brussels sprouts and leeks on baking sheet

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.  

Sauce and butter

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.  

Serve lamb chops with mustard mint sauce

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