Red Currant and Mint Lamb Chops

Reminiscent of a Cumberland Sauce, this version is quick and really rather glamorous.

1 tbs. garlic flavored olive oil
6 Frenched lamb chops, seasoned
juice of 3 clementines
1 tbs. re currant jelly (or black, in a pinch)
large dash Worcestershire sauce
large dash red wine or sherry vinegar
1 tbs. butter
chopped leaves from 5-6 stalks fresh mint (or 1/2 tsp. dried)

Heat the oil in a large, non-stick skillet and cook the lamb for 2-3 minutes per side, depending on how thick they are and how you like them cooked. Remove to a large piece of foil and seal the foil tightly.

Tip the clementine juice, jelly, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar into the skillet and bubble to thicken a bit. Divide the chops between two plates and pour any juices left in the foil into the sauce along with the butter. Whisk well, then drizzle over the chops. Sprinkle with mint to serve.

Serves 2
