American Lamb Chops with Mint-Mustard Sauce

Prep Time:
15 mins.
Cook Time:
15 mins.


  • 12 American lamb loin chops, 1” thick
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • Salt and pepper
Mint-Mustard Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/3 cup mint leaves


  1. Take your lamb chops out of the refrigerator and allow them to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat your broiler to HIGH or grill to medium.
  3. Place garlic cloves and olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Allow to heat for 5 minutes, until oil is fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Brush chops on both sides with the garlic oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place on a broiler pan or grill. Broil or grill the chops for 4 to 5 minutes on each side (or until internal temp is 135°F for medium-rare), and let rest for up to 10 minutes, tented with foil.
  5. To make the Mint-Mustard Sauce, add mustard, vinegar, honey and horseradish to a food processor or blender. Turn it on and stream in the remaining oil and the garlic cloves. Add mint and process until finely chopped.
  6. Serve the lamb chops with Mint Mustard Sauce on the side.
