  • 2 cups mint finely chopped
  • 1 lemon freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. Mix garlic, cilantro, parsley, mint, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes.

  2. Lightly salt lamb chops and thoroughly coat the chops with a thin layer of flour.

  3. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add chops to the heated skillet and cook to desired doneness. Personally, I cook each side for 4-5 minutes per side (medium-rare).
