Delish!!! I substituded Beef Stock in place of the chicken stock and it was amazing. I love this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked this last night and it was really easy, fast and tasty. I used fresh rosemary, definitely better and also on top of just salt and pepper on the meat, I added a little garlic powder. Just feel like Lamb needs a little extra help because it can have that funny taste. Other than that, I followed this receipt exactly and turned out great. Oh! and a little more fresh lemon juice too! The meat does need more than 2 min. per side. I cooked it 4 min. on first side and 3 min. on 2nd side and it was just pink inside, not bloody. Will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved everything! Do need to crush dried rosemary and I did need to cook it longer. Very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really easy to make, and the sauce both smelled and tasted fabulous. I had to cook the meat quite a bit longer (4 min/side, maybe even a bit more)to get medium rare, so maybe my chops were too thick? It was excellent regardless. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As a recently retired "novice cook", this is just as I said. PS: If using dried rosemary, just crush with back of a spoon, or whatever! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy and great flavor. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy but flavorful. Recomend fresh rosemary. Limit oil for cooking to get more dreggs. Try this for none lamb eaters! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fast, easy, and delicious meal. We loved it! I will, however, use fresh rosemary next time instead of dried, as the dry stems were a bit "splintery." item not reviewed by moderator and published
