lamb chop marinade

  1. In a bowl or a bag that seals add your ingredients and lamb. Let marinate overnight or at least 30 minutes. Bring out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking to let it come to room temp. If only marinating for 30 minutes leave at room temp.

How to Sear Lamb Chops:

  • Heat your pan on high with olive oil when hot add lamb chops. Allow to cook for 3 minutes on each side. There should be a nice crust formed.
  • Check the temp of the lamb chops. Remove the lamb between 140-145 and let rest for 5 minutes then slice thin.

Cranberry sauce

  1. In a small saucepan bring all ingredients to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes Remove from heat. The sauce will thicken as it sits and cools.

Baguette

  • Cut thin slices, crosswise. Drizzle with olive oil and broil for a minute or two. Until they are golden brown.

Assemble Lamb Appetizer
