1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 shallot, minced

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Salt and ground black pepper

1 tablespoon ground cumin

12 lamb rib chops

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

Heat the oven to 200 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, mint, garlic, shallot and lemon juice. Mix well, then taste and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper and the cumin. Rub the mixture over both sides of each lamb chop.

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add half of the chops and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to an oven-safe plate and place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tablespoon of oil and chops.

Serve the chops topped with the mint-yogurt sauce.

Serves four.
