Honey Balsamic Lamb

Servings 4 servings


  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 3 shallots chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 lamb chops
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or use coconut oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate lamb chops overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe). Prepare marinade: Place first 6 ingredients (vinegar through black pepper) in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth.
  • Place lamb chops in a large zipper-topped plastic bag, pour marinade mixture on top then seal the bag and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • At time of cooking, melt the ghee (or coconut oil) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove lamb chops from marinade (reserving marinade) and add to the skillet; sear for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked to your preference; remove from skillet and keep warm.
  • Add marinade to the skillet; bring to a boil and whisk up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan; reduce heat and simmer for 8 minutes.
  • Serve sauce over lamb chops.
