Recipe for Pan Fried Lamb Chops for One. This quick and easy recipe makes a perfect single serving meal.


  • 8 ounces lamb chops (1 or 2 loin chops; 3 or 4 rib chops)
  • 1 peeled and crushed garlic clove
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon wedge


  1. 1. Half an hour before you plan to eat, trim all but a thin border of fat from lab chops and blot them with a paper towel. Rub both sides with garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. 2. Heat the vegetable oil in a small heavy skillet or ridged grill pan (preferably non-stick). Brown the chops on both sides; this will take no longer than a minute. Lower the heat to medium and cook for four minutes longer for medium-rare chops. Deduct a minute for rare chops, add a minute or to for well done.
  3. 3. Squeeze the lemon over the chops just before eating.
