  • 6 lamb loin chops with bone
  • 1 shallot; sliced 
  • 2-3 cloves garlic heads; thinly sliced
  • 3 tbs smoked paprika
  • 2 tbs black pepper
  • 3 tbs cumin powder
  • 2 tbs himalayan salt
  • 3 tbs ghee 


  • ¼ cup chives; chopped 
  • ¼ cup cilantro; chopped 
  • Instructions

    1. Coat the lamb generously with cumin, smoked paprika, pepper, and himalayan salt. 
    2. Place cast iron pan on medium-high heat. Add ghee, let it melt, ensuring the pan is completely coated.  
    3. Once pan is hot, add 2-3 lamb chops at a time, depending upon size of cast iron. Careful not to crowd the pan. 
    4. Cook lamb chops for 3-minutes on each side to achieve medium rare finish. At the 3-minute mark, add the garlic and shallots. If you want to get fancy, you can arroser the ghee, garlic, and shallots over the lamb while cooking. 
    5. When finished, let lamb rest for 2-3 minutes. 
    6. Garnish with garlic, shallots, and herbs.
