Our pasture-raised lamb loin chops are tender, succulent, and packed with flavor, making them an excellent choice for your next meal.
Preparing Lamb Loin Chops
Before you begin cooking your lamb loin chops, make sure to let them come to room temperature. This will ensure even cooking and help you achieve the perfect internal temperature. Season the chops generously with salt and pepper, or any other herbs and spices you prefer.
There are several ways to cook lamb loin chops, and each method can produce delicious results. Here are three popular methods to consider:
- Pan-searing: Heat a heavy skillet or cast iron pan over medium-high heat with a bit of oil. Once hot, add the chops and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
- Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chops for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
- Broiling: Preheat your broiler and place the chops on a broiler pan. Broil the chops for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
Remember to use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature reaches 145°F (medium-rare) or 160°F (medium).
