Can I substitute pork for lamb?

Absolutely. Pork is a great alternative for lamb in many recipes including this one. If you are going to use pork, I would recommend using pork chops. The cooking time for pork might also vary a bit. Make sure the internal temperature of the pork is 145 degrees Fahrenheit. That means the pork is cooked and safe to consume.

WHAT WINES PAIR WELL WITH Lamb Chops?

  • A nice, fruity red wine such as Zinfandel or Syrah will pair nicely with the flavors in this lamb dish.
  • If you’re looking for a white option, Riesling or Pinot Grigio are always great matches for bold, somewhat spicy dishes.

Garlic Lamb Chops

Garlic Lamb Chops are topped with juicy roma cherry tomatoes and parsley, then cooked in the oven. Served over pasta, this is an easy and elegant meal.

Ingredients

Lamb Chops:
  • 1.5 lb lamb chops
  • 1 cup roma cherry tomatoes halved
  • 12 garlic gloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper
Pasta:
  • 2 cups dry pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 roma cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil chopped
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place the lamb chops in a baking dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Pat down with your hands to make sure the condiments get into the meat. Top with a few tablespoons of fresh parsley.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chops to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  4. Add the chops back to the baking dish in one single layer, top with Roma cherry tomatoes and bake for 10-15 minutes for medium well, and less for medium.
  5. In the meantime cook pasta based on box directions. Once pasta is done heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet, add the drained pasta, Roma cherry tomatoes, marinara sauce, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3-4 minutes only.
  6. Remove lamb chops from the oven, top with the remaining fresh parsley and serve over pasta.
