Here's a bistro-style entrée that's easy to make using supermarket ingredients and the oven does most of the heavy lifting. While the broccolini and potatoes roast up to crispy perfection virtually unsupervised, you'll get to work coating lamb loin chops in crushed black peppercorns and giving them a good sear in a skillet. A quick pan sauce made with shallots and red wine ties everything together for a delicious and surprisingly simple meal.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. On a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and toss. Roast about 15 minutes. Flip potatoes and move them around to the perimeter of the baking sheet. Add Broccolini to center and drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and toss. Roast until vegetables are tender, 20 minutes more.

  • Season chops on both sides with salt and crushed peppercorns. Heat a large skillet over medium-high; swirl in 2 tablespoons oil. Add 4 chops and cook until a thermometer registers 130°F, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; repeat with other 4 chops.

  • Wipe skillet clean and reduce heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon oil and shallot and cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine and any leftover juices from plate; bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in butter and season with salt. Serve lamb with vegetables and sauce.
