Ingredients

For the Lamb Chops:

For the Polenta Salad:

For the sauce:

Directions

  1. Combine herbs with a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Rub onto chops. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  2. For the Polenta Salad: Bring the stock to a boil. Stir in polenta and lower heat. Continue to stir until bubbling. Add garlic, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper, to taste. Stir well. Pour into a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. For the sauce: Warm olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Remove from heat and add the garlic slivers. Combine with the lamb stock, soy sauce and a few drops of lemon juice. Keep warm.
  4. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees To assemble the plate, invert the polenta onto a cutting board and cut into 1-inch squares. Grill or pan-roast the lamb chops to desired temperature, about 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Warm the polenta "croutons" in the oven in a nonstick, ovenproof saute pan. When hot, toss the croutons with the arugula, olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.
  5. Arrange 2 lamb chops on each plate with some salad and spoon warm sauce over the meat.
