1 cup canned beef broth
6 Bigelow Plantation Mint® Tea Bags
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter, unsalted, at room temperature
6 bone-in lamb chops (about 3 lbs)
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon of finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 small clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup Dijon mustard

Yield: Serves 6


These lamb chops make an elegant meal, but are even better when served with this delicious minted gravy. The flavor comes from Bigelow Plantation Mint®,tea and a touch of honey gives it a hint of sweetness.

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Combine the bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
Using a brush, coat both sides of each chop with mustard, and press breadcrumb mixture onto chops.

Place chops on a rack on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until medium-doneness is achieved.

While the chops are baking, bring beef stock to a boil in a small saucepan, turn off the heat. Add the teabags and steep for 10 minutes, making sure they are all submerged. Remove the teabags to a small strainer and using the back of a spoon, press as much liquid as possible back into the pan.

Stir in the honey and return to a boil, stirring until the honey is incorporated. In a small bowl, combine the flour and butter into a smooth paste, using a fork. Turn off heat, add the butter/flour mixture to the gravy, bit by bit, and whisk until it is incorporated and the sauce thickened.

Remove lamb chops from the oven, let stand for 3-4 minutes. Place on a serving platter and serve hot gravy on the side.
