These saucy lamb chops may seem fancy, but mine work for special occasions as well as busy evenings. We love them with spinach salad and good bread. —Barbara Burge, Los Gatos, CA

  • 4 lamb loin chops (5 to 6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar


  1. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook chops, covered, until bottoms are browned, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Mix molasses, steak sauce and vinegar. Turn chops; pour molasses mixture over top. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat until lamb reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), 5-7 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
