Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Mince garlic and mash with salt. In a small bowl stir together garlic paste, rosemary, pepper, and 2 tablespoons oil. Pat lamb chops dry. Reserve 1 tablespoon rosemary for sauce and rub remainder evenly onto chops. Lamb chops can be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Chill reserved rosemary, covered.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Quarter shallots and tomatoes lengthwise and in a bowl toss with 2 tablespoons oil, thyme, minced garlic, sugar, and salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange tomatoes, cut sides up, in 1 layer in a shallow baking pan with shallots and roast in oven for 30 minutes. Halve and pit olives. While vegetables are roasting, in a 12-inch oven-proof skillet, heat remaining tablespoon oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, and sear chops until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.

Reduce temperature to 375 degrees F. Put chops in upper third of oven. Roast vegetables until tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Roast chops 10 to 15 minutes for medium rare.

Tansfer chops to platter and let rest in a warm place. Add wine to skillet with reserved rosemary and boil, scraping up brown bits, 1 minute. Boil mixture until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Add broth and boil mixture until reduced to about 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes.

When chops are cooked, pour any meat juices from serving dish into skillet and bring jus to a boil. Cut butter into pieces and add it and the olives to jus. Swirl skillet to incorporate butter and boil until jus is slightly thickened. Season jus with salt and pepper and stir in parsley. Arrange chops on serving dish with tomatoes and shallots. Spoon sauce over all servings.
