A plate of lamb chops with asparagus.It's easy to make your lamb chops super elegant with this quick and easy method. All you need to do is pan sear the lamb, then use its juices to make a pan butter with sizzling herbs. I used mint and parsley here.


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 5-6 bone-in lamb chops, room temp
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp dried mint
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • squeeze of lemon or drizzle of any vinegar
Ingredients for herb butter lamb chops.


  1. It's important to let your chops come to room temperature before searing for even cooking throughout. Sprinkle all over with some salt and pepper.
  2. Uncooked lamb chops on a plate.
  3. Place one tablespoon of oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add chops. Cook for 3-6 minutes on first side, depending on thickness of your chops.
  4. Lamb chops in a frying pan.

  5. Flip over and cook another 3-6 minutes. My lamb chops were quite thick, so I added a couple tablespoons of water to the pan and covered it with a lid. I cook mine to about an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  6. Cooking lamb chops in a frying pan.
  7. Transfer chops to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Switch pan heat to low. Add other tablespoon of oil and one tablespoon of butter to the pan and swirl around the lamb's juices.
  8. Melting butter in the frying pan.
  9. Add the dried herbs and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Shut off heat and stir in a squeeze of lemon or drizzle of vinegar. I used balsamic vinegar.
  10. Herbs being added to melted butter.

  11. Spoon the herb butter over the lamb chops. Serve immediately.
