Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lamb rib chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl, then stir so that the lamb is coated. Place bowl in the refrigerator and allow the lamb to marinate for 1 hour.
  • Once you're ready to cook, preheat your air fryer to 400°. Use kitchen tongs to place the lamb chops into your air fryer, making sure they don't overlap. Cook them for 7-10 minutes total, flipping them halfway through. You'll know they're cooked once they reach an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Serve lamb chops with a simple aioli (mayonnaise, olive oil and minced garlic), homemade chimichurri or my favorite kale pesto.

Notes

*Calories are for 1 lamb chop and are an estimation 
*Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure the lamb is done; they should reach 145°F after 7-10 minutes total
*Storage: store lamb in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
