WINDROSE FARM LAMB CHOPS
Total time: 40 minutes | Serves 4 to 8
Note: From Bill and Barbara Spencer of Windrose Farm.
½ teaspoon celery seeds
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
8 lamb chops
1. Grind the celery seeds, preferably using a mortar and pestle. Combine the celery seeds with the olive oil, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, mint and rosemary to make a marinade.
2. Drench the chops in the marinade, making sure all sides are covered. Set aside to rest as you warm up a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot, about 5 minutes.
3. Sear the chops (this will probably need to be done in batches) 3 to 4 minutes on each side, then cover the pan or skillet and continue cooking the chops to desired doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes more.
4. Remove from heat and set aside to rest for several minutes before serving.
