Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4



  • 1 kilo lamb chops
  • 1 sprig rosemary, finely chopped
  • Coarse salt for serving
  • Freshly ground pepper

For the marinade

  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 100 ml balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped


In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the marinade

Add the lamb chops to the bowl, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat. When it is hot, sauté the lamb chops on both sides until lightly browned – 3 to 4 minutes. No additional oil/fat is required.
