Tuscan Lamb Chops


Lamb can be an expensive dinner, and while it’s still cheaper than going out it’s something I don’t make all the time.  I like to make it for special occasions like one of those snowy winter nights when you’ve just had all the snow you can take and this lamb dinner is the only thing keeping you sane.  Or this meal would make an excellent Valentine’s Day dinner for two.  So impressive, yet so easy.  Add a simple side salad and a bottle of wine for an easy chic romantic dinner at home.

Tuscan Lamb Chops
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbs plus 1 tsp rosemary, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 c onion, chopped
3 tbs olive oil
1.5 lbs lamb chops, frenched and chopped 8 portions (2 rib bones per piece)
1 tsp parsley
2 tbs tomato paste
1/2 c chicken broth
1/2 c water

In a mini food processor combine 4 garlic cloves, rosemary, salt, 1/4 c onion, 2 tbs olive oil, and pepper to taste.  Pulse until well combined.  Spread garlic paste evenly over the lamb chops, let marinate for 1 hour.  Broil lamb chops for 10 minutes total, turning every few minutes to evenly brown.  Meanwhile heat remaining 1 tbs olive oil over medium high heat.  Add remaining 1 garlic clove and 1/4 c onion, cook for 3 minutes.  Add parsley and stir in tomato paste.  Add chicken broth and water, let reduce until it reaches a sauce consistency.  To serve put a tablespoon of sauce under each lamb chop then enjoy.
