Cassandra's Yummy Lamb Chops Reviews

  • Made only a couple of changes - roasted the garlic with olive oil and Italian Herbs. I mixed the olive oil and red wine together, added the oil from the garlic and a dash more Italian Herbs. I had two racks of baby lamb, so I split them, rubbed them with the roasted garlic and marinated them for about 5 hours. They were awesome. Made an easy port/red wine sauce to go with. Thanks Cassandra This was my first go at lamb - great base recipe

  • My husband loves lamb so I thought I would give this a try. It was very easy to make and my husband loved it...I will definitely make it again. I made 4 chops instead of 2, but didnt change the amount of garlic, used the same amount of oil and just poured the wine in until it covered the chops.

  • I was really excited after reading the reviews for this. I have made lamb with wine before and didnt think there was much risk. I wasnt impressed at all and wont be making again, I have to agree with the previous reviews; waste too much olive oil and the combination of thyme and red wine did nothing for me. Sorry.

  • Ive been vegetarian for nearly 15 years and Ive never cooked meat in my life -- Ive never even touched raw meat. Making this recipe was my first attempt at cooking meat, and let me tell you I was totally PARANOID about cooking the meat properly. I made this for my meat-eating fiancee. Not only was this recipe incredibly easy to make, my fiancee says its the best lamb recipe hes ever eaten at home, and second only to one he had in a restaurant. Very moist and flavourful.

  • These lamb chops were wonderful. I roasted my garlic with dill and rosemary and retained those herbs when I marinated them. The wine gave them a lovely, and not overpowering flavor. I made some mint sauce and broiled them. GREAT

  • This recipe wasnt bad, but the combination of red wine and thyme didnt work for me. Ill probably make it again, but wont put in the thyme next time. Also, I used about half the amount of olive oil in the recipe over three lamb chops (in a really small dish), and it was just fine. Personally I cant afford to be marinating things in massive quantities of olive oil and throw that precious oil away the next day

  • I was looking for baby lamb chop recipes on google and read this wrong, and prepped six baby chops per the recipe and then marinated them overnight before realizing, so I decided to continue along with the wine and just cut down the cooking time. (did 5 mins a side but they could have used 6) Turned out great. I used fresh thyme instead of dried, and also saved the oil from the marinade to use for the cooking - all nice and garlic/herb infused, plus using a cup and a half of olive oil on one meal is a bit luxe for my wallet.

  • I misread the recipe, and added the red wine to the marinade. I cut back on the olive oil since 1.5 cups sounded like way too much. Marinated the chops for about 8 hours, and cooked them in a skillet for about 4 minutes per side. They turned out perfectly - tender, juicy, and the marinade didnt overwhelm the flavor of the lamb. Thanks, Cassandra

  • Loved every bite The recipe was definitely easy to follow. I did a little tweeking to it... I put all the ingredients together, added seasonings that I commonly use for meats, and let the chops marinate overnight with the wine...FANSTASTIC

  • Wow, never made lamb before, and all involved agree better than anything we have had in a restaurant #1, only marinated 4 hours with olive oil and 4 more with wine added Everything else went smoot and easy

  • This recipe was tasty After reading some of the other reviews regarding the red wine "not going" with the lamb, I decided not to add and it was just fine. I also butterflied the chops to allow them to cook evenly. I discovered I didnt have any thyme and substituted with herbs du provence. The meal paired nicely with an arugula and manchego salad.

  • Tender, juicey, and flavorful all describe this recipe. My husband went crazy for these and my 80 year old father said they were the best he had ever eaten

  • This recipe is really goo I knew exactly what to do when I started, because the recipes were so easy

  • Delicious The flavor is perfect for lamb chops. I didnt like lamb chops until I grilled them using this recipe.

  • My boyfriend looooooves lamb so I thought Id try this recipe, he didnt care for it whatsoever. I wont be making this recipe again.

  • It was ok but it was to much oil. It wasnt my favourite way of cooking lamb chops. Dont think I make it again though.

  • I cooked this for my boyfriend and roommate on Valentines Day and we all loved it It was easy to make and was extremely tender. I will definitely make this again and have already received requests to cook it.

  • I was very disappointed. The flavor of the wine clashed with the lamb and it wasnt tender at all. Perhaps it was the brand of wine and the cut of meat. I dont recommend this.

  • I made this the other night. Made as was written. Very tender and didnt have that strong taste. Was actually to MY surprise very delious. My husband raved over it, how tender they were. Thank you, this was my firt time making lamb chops dot71

  • My husband brought home lamb chops..hmmm. Had tried ground lamb and didnt really care for it, so I hoped that by using a good recipe wed enjoy chops. No such luck It was pretty nasty, as they were greasy, tough and very fatty. On the positive, the seasoning was good, perhaps beef would be better. The kids put on a brave face as we laughed thru dinner (while baa-ing), but we ended up feeding them to the dog.

  • I def. used alot less olive oil, but the recipe turned out great

  • Will definitely make again My family loved this. Very flavorful and moist I marinated for 24 hours.

  • My family loved this dinner Chops were wonderful

  • It was delicious and I didnt put it in the fridge as long . Great recipe.
