    I am going to be cook at school and the food I have to make must be a main course and it must be suitable for Christmas so I decided to make some lamb chops and I found a recipe online but the only problem is that I am not sure what to make with the lamb chops.

    This is the website which I found the recipe:

    http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/best-ever-lamb-chops 

    (If anyone could give me a better dish or even a better recipe then could you please tell me) 

    Thank you (before hand)

    Oh gosh this is a terrible recipe, dried basil and mint jelly?  I never use recipes from that site.  Try looking on epicurious.com or on tastespotting.com I have found amazing recipes on those.

    Out of curiosity?  Are you cooking at a cooking school?  Because if you are you might want to come up with something on your own and then practice it until you get it right.

    I abhor mint jelly. Now a proper mint sauce based on vinegar and fresh mint, that's the way to go.

    Ah, mint jelly. Boo lol

    Try Grilling them, and serve with chopped kalamata, feta cheese, and pomegranate. Delicious!

    Don't knock mint jelly as a condiment for lamb.

    Also remember that lamb differs in strength of flavor depending on where they were grown.

    Some lamb is down right nasty and needs the strong flavors of basil or rosemary or oregano to overcome that.

    A friend of mine from Montana grew up never eating lamb because of the belief that the meat was too strong to eat.

    Am I to believe that you have a jar of dried basil in your cupboard @Chefross?

    This is not 1979

    Loin chops, or shoulder chops?  One is cooked different than the other and both are open to different interpretation for sides.  

    One of my favorite ways to serve loin chops is with potatoes and a salad of radicchio, endive and frisee with a simple vinaigrette.  I par cook my potatoes, slice in half, season and cut side down in a pan of butter.

    I like lamb chops witha fresh Dill lemon marinade and the same for the sauce. A tak on Swedish lamb with Dill sauce stew. I usually do a Hasselback potato and a salad with a Dill lemon dressing.

    One of my ex boss's "signature" dishes was rack of lamb served with "fresh-bought" 

    mint jelly, and a mint sprig. And she subscribed to Taste of home magazine.

    Funny, I didn't make that connection until now. lol

    However.....

    to my knowledge we never did get any complaints about the dish neither.

    Me too. To marinate lamb chops, I toast cumin seeds and coriander seeds along with black peppercorns. I grind those with a mortar and pestle and mix with olive oil, crushed garlic and lemon juice.

    Ha-Ha....

    What's this "dried" you refer to?

    Not only do I grow my own, I also make my own mint jelly.

    Well this sounds much much better than what the recipe suggests, wouldn't you agree?

    Now that's legit. I worked at a place that had no less than 42 bottles of that Smucker's shit. When I left a year and a bit later, they still had 42 bottles. That shit is disgusting. That said, a sauce in house made with fresh mint? I'm all over that!

    Just thinking too... A great accompaniment to the lamb would be vermicelli pilaf, Armenian style. Damn, I'm getting hungry.

    I am deathly allergic to pinenuts. I use toasted pepitos when making pesto. Carrot tops work if people don't like cilantro
