1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp whole grain mustard

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp fennel seed
salt and pepper


in a bowl combine garlic powder, fennel seed, leaves from one sprig of rosemary, salt and pepper. pat lamb chops dry and coats with the spice mixture. let the chops marinate for at least 30 a cast iron skillet, heat olive oil to high heat. add remaining rosemary sprigs and chops. sear on both sides (about 3 to 4 minutes on each side).

meanwhile, in a bowl whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard, and garlic. set aside.

once you have seared the lamb on both sides, add wine and mushrooms to the skillet and reduce to a simmer. after about 2 minutes, pour half of the balsamic mixture over the chops, then flip them and pour the other half on them. let cook for 5 minutes on simmer.

top with extra rosemary for presentation.  i served on top of a vegetable mash up of okra, squash and onions but you can serve with anything you want!  i think i nice mashed potato would be great with this too to soak up the juices from the lamb!
