Fast & Easy Dinner: Lamb Chops with Tomatoes

Fast & Easy Dinner: Lamb Chops with Tomatoes

I used to save lamb chops for holidays, but then I realized that they can be just as delicious grilled to perfection and served with a homemade salsa. Lamb chops are actually wonderful when you are short on time because they cook in under 20 minutes. Tonight, serve these chops with a quick cooking rice and a simple, chunky tomato sauce. Fresh oregano and balsamic vinegar add freshness and a zippy tang to this meal. Spice up the middle of the week with this former special occasion meat, just

As much as I love lamb I don't get to eat it as much since for some stupid reason I can't get it this far down south unless I am at Outback. But I can order it, it is just really expensive, but I might have to splurg for something that yummy!
