Lamb Chops with Lemon & Olives


  1. Season the lamb loin chops with salt and pepper. No need to remove the fat as this will render when cooked and release delicious flavour.
  2. Dredge each piece in flour then shake off excess.
  3. Heat a large heavy base pan with olive oil (it will need a lid).
  4. When hot, place lamb in and lightly brown on each side. When one side is brown, flip and in-between the pieces of lamb, add the whole cloves of garlic in between the lamb pieces.
  5. When both sides are browned, squeeze juice of half a lemon. Slice the other half and place lemon pieces on top of the lamb. 
  6. Add wine and cook out for a few minutes. Add the olives and place the rosemary stalks in and lid on. 
  7. Lower to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. 

*If adding potatoes, scatter these over the lamb when adding the garlic cloves. Ensure the pieces are small enough so they cook in time.
