If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this photo of our Creamy Dijon Skillet Lamb Chops recently. I had so many requests for this recipe that I decided to a blog post. Sharing is caring y’all.
What is Atkins Ranch?
I partnered with Atkins Ranch for an Instagram Campaign where I shared about their lamb products. If you’re not familiar, Atkins Ranch lamb is 100% grass fed and pasture raised in New Zealand. Natural, healthy and delicious. They are the first lamb producer in the world to achieve Non-GMO Project verification, as well as being the first lamb producer globally to achieve Global Animal Partnership Step-4 accreditation.
I was provided me with these gorgeous lamb loin chops and I knew immediately I wanted to bathe the loin chops in a creamy Dijon sauce with mushrooms and thyme.
Because I truly believe beautiful delicious food doesn’t have to be complicated, and because I loathe extra dishes, this entire meal is made in ONE cast iron skillet.
It starts by seasoning the lamb chops with salt and pepper and then they’re seared on both sides. They’re set aside to rest while we get saucy in the skillet. Mushrooms, wine, Dijon and cream all join the party to create a sauce that begs for a side of gnocchi or a baguette to soak up all of it’s deliciousness.
