Pan Searing

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
Heat your pan up on medium heat setting.
When heated, add 1 tbsp olive oil to the pan.
Add the lamb chops into the pan and sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Being careful not to burn the meat.
After the meat has been seared, place the lamb in the preheated oven. (If you do not have a pan that you can directly place in the oven you will need to transfer the meat to a pan that can be placed in the oven).
Bake for 5 to 15 minutes. For well done you will need to bake for approximately 15 minutes.

I recommend serving these seared lamb chops with lemon baked potatoes and a Greek or garden salad. This dish goes really well with most potato dishes and grilled asparagus.
