Lamb Chops with Herbs

I saw a whole lot of chilled Australian lamb on promotion and grabbed them off the freezer. I have yet to try my hand at cooking lamb. Hooray! Something new.

I made a simple marinade of dry mixed herbs, added extra dried thyme, then salt, pepper and olive oil. Massage well into the meat and leave in the fridge overnight. To cook, heat up pan with some oil. Cook lamb on one side for about 6-8 mins (depending on thickness of cut) .When its lightly browned, turn to the other side and cook several minutes.

The fat was the best part - all the flavour from the marinade is here and it has a delicious melt in mouth texture.
