Collegian Cooks: The legendary lamb

Oh spring, what a lovely month. It is hot one day and cold the next. Should you fire up the grill or curl up around a warm crock pot? Who knows? There aren’t many foods that fit the fickle nature of spring weather, and yet here in Ram country, there is a solution: Lamb.

No other meats meet the criteria for spring more then a nice lamb chop seared and cooked to perfection. With an added side dish of stuffing, nothing can be a more light, yet savory meal to tide you over until summer grilling.

Here’s how to make your spring eating legendary with a nice chop:

Seared Lamb Chops

  • 4 lamb chops
  • A handful of rosemary

Step two: Heat an oven-safe pan on the stove top over medium-high heat.  Place your chops on and let them brown on both sides.

Step three: Once browned, place the entire pan in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until desired temperature is met.
