Sticky lamb chops Recipe by Jamie Oliver
This Sticky lamb chops recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s newest cookbook, 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food.
Total: Just 15 minutes
– 6 lamb chops, French-trimmed (600g total)
– 200g mixed-colour baby heritage carrots
– 8 cloves of garlic
– 3 oranges
– ½ a bunch of fresh thyme (15g)
1. Score the fat of the lamb chops, season them with sea salt and black pepper, then line them up, like a rack, and sit them together fat edges down in a large shallow casserole pan on a medium-high heat. Leave for 5 minutes to render and crisp up. Trim and add the whole baby carrots (halving any larger ones) and the unpeeled garlic cloves alongside, turning the carrots regularly.
2. Gently turn the chops on to their sides, to cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden, but still pink in the middle. Meanwhile, use a speed-peeler to peel strips of zest from 1 orange. Sprinkle them into the pan with the thyme sprigs, and toss it all together for just 30 seconds to get the flavours going.
3. Remove the chops to a plate to rest, then squeeze the juice from all 3 oranges into the pan. Let the juice bubble and reduce until sticky, quickly toss the lamb back in with its resting juices, then hey presto, time to dish up.
