Adding a bit of salty bacon and sweet caramelized onions will make this lamb rib chop dish the hit of the party.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


4 American Lamb rib chops, cut 1 1/4 inches thick

Salt and pepper, to taste

4 slices bacon

Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed

2 red onions, thinly sliced

2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary

1Season the rib chops with salt and pepper. Wrap 1 bacon slice around each chop.

2Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Brown the chops, seam-side down, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a large plate.
