St. Patrick’s Day “Irish Lamb Chops”

For a printer friendly version of this recipe, click here.

A very easy dish to make for St. Patrick’s Day or any other day!  I’m a big fan of Colcannon (see below)  and think it would be a great accompaniment to serve with the lamb.

Makes 2 Servings

Season 4 lamb chops with salt & pepper. Brown chops on both sides to the way you like your lamb cooked, or see my meat cooking chart** & keep warm in a 180 F oven.

Add 1 Tbsp. butter to the pan. Add 2 Tbsp. chopped shallots and sauté until softened. Pour in 2 – 3 Tbsp. Irish Whiskey , bring to a boil for a minute or so, add 1/2 cup beef stock or lamb stock if you have it,** a Tbsp. of tomato paste, a bay leaf and some parsley. Reduce a for a minute or two to slightly thicken. If you wish to add a bit of luxury, you can add a bit of cream. Serve the sauce with the chops.
