A hearty recipe to celebrate the footy finals with friends!
Combine lamb chops, 2 tbsp olive oil, dried herbs, spices, garlic, rind and juice in a bowl, season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and mix well to combine. Cover and refrigerate to marinate for a few hours.
For minty feta dip, process ingredients in a small food processor until smooth, season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate until required.
Drain lamb chops from marinade. Preheat a char-grill pan or frying pan over medium-high heat and cook lamb chops, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked to your liking (4-5 minutes for medium).
Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and rest for a couple of minutes then serve scattered with fresh mint and with lemon wedges to squeeze over, along with minty feta dip.
Marinate the lamb overnight for even more flavor. Try dried Greek oregano (rigani) if you can find it as it has wonderful flavor – it’s available in large bunches from many delicatessens.
If you’re not on a budget, lamb cutlets also work well for this dish.
