Tartly sweet Lamb chops
Tangy, luscious sparks of citrus, on your tender Lamb chops are such a simple and satisfying meal.
Hello everyone, today we will be cooking some magnificent lamb chops glazed with oranges. This recipe only takes 15 minutes to serve and enjoy, so let's get started.
600g lamb chops (around 6 or 8)
6 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of dry thyme
This recipe serves 2 people, but if you are more, do not worry, double or triple the amounts and everything will be fine!
So, because this recipe is so quick, we will start preparing everything for the cooking moment.
Start seasoning the chops with salt and pepper and reserve it.
Then, snap off the bottom of the asparagus stalks on its own breaking point, wich is between the bottom and the center of each asparagus (put your hands in these points), start to bend it up and a bit away from yourself by pulling both ends down and a bit towards you. Keep gently bending the asparagus until it snaps. You can do this with every asparagus or take the first one as a reference and cut the other ones with a knife.
Use a speed-peeler to peel stripes of zest from one orange, and squeeze the juice from both Oranges and reserve it.
And now... the cooking moment...preheat a frying pan on a medium-high heat with 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil. then line up the lamb chops, like a rack, and sit them together with the fat edges down for 5 minutes to render and crisp up. Add the asparagus and the unpeeled garlic cloves alongside, turning the asparragus regularly.
Gently turn the chops on to their sides, to cook for two minutes on each side, or until golden but still pink in the middle. Sprinkle the orange zest and toss it all together for just 30 seconds to get the flavours going.
Remove the chops to a plate to rest, then pour the orange juice into the pan. Let the juice bubble and reduce until stick, quickly toss the lamb back in with its resting juices, then is time to dish up, sprinkle the dry thyme to get more flavour.
Here you are again, enjoy!

If you do not have one of the ingredients on the list or you do not like it, Don't hesitate to use another type of oil or maybe replace the asparagus for carrots. You can also use pork or chiken if you are not a fan of lamb. If you also like sweet, you can add honey on the orange juice. This recipe is just a guide, and you can adapt it to your tastes.
So do not stop doing it, you will be surprised how fast and delicious it is!
