Instructions

For Lamb Chops:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce and remaining ingredients.
  2. Place chops in a large zip lock bag and pour marinade over chops. Seal bag securely and massage marinade into meat.
  3. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or over night.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in an iron skillet over medium high heat.
  5. Add chops and sear for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Remove skillet and place in the oven.
  6. Cook lamb chops for 5 minutes; turn over and cook for another 5 minutes for medium-rare.

For Polenta:

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Whisk in the polenta in a steady stream, then DECREASE HEAT TO MEDIUM.
  2. Cook polenta while stirring with a wooden spoon. Continue stirring for 10 minutes so polenta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
  3. Add the cheese and rosemary and stir for about 2 minutes or until cheese is almost fully melted. Stir in the butter until melted, and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with lamb chops on top.
