Spice-Rubbed Lamb Chops

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2005


  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 lamb rib chops (about 5 1/2 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ounce arugula (about 2 cups)
  • Roasted Cauliflower with Ginger and Mint


  1. Stir together thyme, cumin, coriander, paprika, and salt in a small bowl; season with pepper. Put lamb chops on a plate; rub each side with spice mixture. Let stand at least 10 minutes, or up to 1 hour.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium heavy skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add chops. Reduce heat to medium. Cook chops, flipping halfway though, until deeply browned, about 10 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer each chop to a serving plate. Divide arugula between plates; drizzle with remaining teaspoon oil. Serve with cauliflower.

    I added some dried mint and 1/8 tsp of cinnamon to the rub. It was tasty, they cooked beautifully and made a delicious Easter dinner. Thanks for the 10 minute cooking directions (better than our grilled version).
