These loin lamb chops are seared and then baked in a simple tomato sauce mixture. Serve the lamb chops with summer squash or zucchini and baked potatoes or rice.


  • 3 loin lamb chops
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.

  2. Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat; add the lamb chops and cook, turning to brown both sides.

  3. Place the chops in a baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

  4. Pour 1/2 cup water into the skillet and stir to loosen browned bits. Add remaining ingredients to skillet then pour over the lamb chops. Alternatively, if the skillet is oven-safe, leave the chops in the skillet.

  5. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

  6. Serve and enjoy!
