Pomegranate Lamb Chops

Known as caveman food in our house, these chops have to be eaten with you hands for complete enjoyment and satisfaction!

By cooking these in a very hot oven you get a lovely spicy crust on the outside that I think goes rather well with the garlicky green dressing.

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

850g lamb chops

3 large garlic cloves, crushed

3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses

3 tablespoons ground cumin

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

4 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

DRESSING

100mls olive oil

1 garlic clove

small bunch fresh parsley, leaves picked

2 large stalks of fresh oregano, leaves picked

juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper

Method

Combine all of the lamb ingredients and leave to marinade in the fridge for 8-24 hours.

When you are ready to cook, take the lamb out of the fridge 20 minutes before cooking.

Preheat the oven as high as it goes, I cook these at 240 degrees Centigrade.

Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

Lay the chops on the prepared tray and pour over any excess marinade.

Pop the tray into the oven and bake for 8-12 minutes depending on the thickness of your chops, the meat in the photo baked for 10 minutes.

While the chops bake process the dressing ingredients to form a thick green dressing.

Once the chops are cooked, allow to rest for 5 minutes and then plate them up with the dressing poured over the top.
