Lemon and thyme lamb chops are classic fare. Lamb chops have been enjoyed for centuries due to it being such a simple cut and the high prevalence of lamb. Due to lamb’s strong natural flavors, it doesn’t require a lot of seasoning to taste good. The lemon and thyme serve to enhance the fatty flavor of the lamb instead of overpowering it. This dish is also very enjoyable to prepare, it can be cooked very naturally outdoors and uses very simple ingredients, giving the cook a sense of nostalgia.
Lamb chops are truly one of the oldest meals available to mankind. There’s good reason for that too, and it’s more than it just tastes good.
