Lamb Chops with Eggplant Caponata
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 small eggplant, diced
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
- 1 tomato, seeded and diced
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon capers
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
- 12 to 16 lamb loin chops
- Arugula, for garnish
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook 3 minutes. Add the eggplant, season with salt and pepper and cook until the eggplant begins to soften, about 3 more minutes. Add the rosemary, tomato and vinegar and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the capers and pine nuts; set aside to cool slightly.
Place a large skillet over high heat. Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper. Working in batches, place the lamb chops in the pan, fat-side down, and cook until the fat begins to render, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the chops onto their sides and cook until crisp and brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
