The chops were medium rare when I marinated them for about 6 hours. I flash-grilled the pre-cooked chops on medium-high for 90 seconds on each side. If ever in the position of having leftover lamb chops again, this will be my go-to recipe!2 JanFlagLoveiscookingI will definitely try this recipe as I am a fan of tasty lamb chops; however, I am not a connoisseur of wine. What brand of red wine has been good to use with this recipe? Unfortunately I missed the view of the bottle that Contessa used.11 SepFlagsgermain08Amazing!16 JunFlagDavid P.BEST LAMB EVER HAD!! So says my wife, and I agree. The marinade is beyond delicious with the lamb. Regarding the yogurt sauce: my processor did not make a paste but rather finely chopped ingredients….and that was perfectly fine. Loved it. This is a must have recipe for lamb lovers and a great way to introduce lamb to those who have not had the pleasure.27 Jan 13Flag1 person found this helpful.zydyFive stars for the taste Contessa, and all without the kosher (just salt. Can”t imagine the kosher taste. Can you describe it please. Does it taste like blood.24 Jan 13Flagben413Awesome recipe….it”s a hit in the parties29 Jun 12Flagdavisbk_7435933This recipe is great! I make it frequently following the recipe closely. However, this week the butcher was out of racks of lamb so I substituted lamb chops which were about 1.25 inches thick. It was equally delicious if not even better… I often omit the dill from the sauce as I don”t often use dill and don”t like to waste food. The sauce is still wonderful without the dill. I always pair the dish with basmati rice. What a fabulous taste combination… I definitely recommend this recipe who likes lamb.29 Apr 12Flag1 person found this helpful.anna645This recipe is delicious. I made it the other night for dinner. The marinade for the lamb smells and tastes amazing. I marinaded the lamb chops for over two hours. Next time I will try marinading it overnight. The lamb chops were great and paired together with the mint sauce, the flavor was outstanding. The mint and lamb go together so well. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys lamb with a twist.31 Jan 12Flag2 people found this helpful.lillian_pienVery flavorful. I would recommend that you make the yogurt sauce the same time you start marinating the lamb chops so the flavors could come together. Giving the sauce some overnight time gave it even more flavor.9 Jan 12Flag1 person found this helpful.amanda crumpDelicious! So much flavor in every bite. I loved the yogurt sauce and I used no fat yogurt. There was plenty left over so I am using it with chicken that I boiled and it will be chicken salad sandwiches.8 Jan 12FlagON TV FULL TV SCHEDULEON NOWDiners, Drive-Ins and Dives6:30|5:30cON TONIGHTRestaurant: Impossible10|9cWHAT”S HOTWorst Cooks in AmericaCulinary boot camp is backMondays 9|8cGET COOKINGFamily FavoritesFind simple, delicious recipes for every night of the week.Kid-Approved EatsIn the KitchenEnjoy on-the-go access to your favorite FN recipes with our top-rated app.Download NowSHARPEN YOUR SKILLSSimple How-TosTop Food VideosLATEST RECIPES FROM FN DISH ALL POSTSA Colorful and Flavorful Rendition on Braised Bratwursts and Cabbage3 Hours agoBest 5 Shrimp Scampi Recipes5 Hours ago10 New Ways to Eat CarrotsFeb 25, 2014Read more at: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/greek-lamb-with-yogurt-mint-sauce-recipe.html?oc=linkback
