Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the lamb chops in a small baking dish, rub with 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, make the salsa verde: In a medium bowl, combine the mint, parsley, tarragon, capers, chile flakes, anchovies, and garlic. Slowly drizzle in the remaining 3/4 cup oil while stirring with a fork; set aside.

Step 3

Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. (Alternatively, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high.) Add the lamb and cook, flipping once, until browned, crusty, and cooked to desired temperature, 6–8 minutes for medium rare if using loin chops (rib chops will take only 4 minutes or so to reach medium rare). Transfer the lamb to a platter and serve with the salsa verde.

Ten stars! I could eat the mint salsa all by itself! This goes perfectly with lamb chops, which I cooked stovetop in a cast iron pan. The Verde Salsa would go well with any number of things, including fish and chicken. Thanks for sharing - it's a definite keeper!
