Recipe Provided By"Oh, So Delicioso"
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup feta cheese
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
- 8 American Lamb loin chops (about 4 oz each)
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 4 sprigs thyme
- Salt and pepper
Combine sour cream, 1/4 cup olive oil, and feta cheese in a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Prep chops by drying them with a paper towel, and then seasoning generously with salt and pepper on each side.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a cast iron skillet, over medium to medium-high heat.
Fry lamb chops in hot oil for 4 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown and seared.
Flip the chops over and place 1 tab of butter on each chop. Add minced garlic and thyme to the hot oil. Stir the garlic quickly so it doesn’t burn. Continue to cook chop for 4 minutes until seared and golden brown.
Top the chops with feta cream sauce.
