Herbed Lamb Chops with Greek Couscous Salad

Lamb loin chops are a healthy alternative to the more popular and more fatty lamb shoulder chops. The loin chops have quite enough flavor to stand up to this herbaceous couscous.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 30 min.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 pounds lamb loin chops, (about 8), trimmed of fat
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat couscous
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Put water on to boil in a medium saucepan.

Step 2

Combine garlic, parsley and salt in a small bowl. Press the garlic mixture into both sides of lamb chops. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the lamb chops and cook to desired doneness, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Keep warm.

Step 3

Meanwhile, stir couscous into the boiling water. Return to a boil, reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes; fluff with a fork. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add tomatoes, cucumber, feta, lemon juice and dill. Stir to combine. Serve the couscous with the lamb chops.
