2 lbs Lamb loin chops

Olive oil, to taste

Kosher salt, to taste

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

1 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp Dried oregano

1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes

1On a cutting board, pat the lamb loin chops dry with a paper towel. Add the lamb loin chops to a large bowl along with olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, rosemary, and garlic, and use your hands to mix until well coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.

Flip the lamb chops over and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown with an internal temperature of 145˚F. Transfer the lamb chops to a serving platter and let rest for at least 3 minutes.
