One minute per side for rare, two minutes per side for medium-rare, and three minutes per side for medium. These times are based on lamb chops that are about 1-inch thick. If your lamb chops are thicker or thinner, you will need to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Also, keep in mind that lamb continues to cook after it has been removed from the heat source, so be sure to factor that into your timing.

Can lamb chops be cooked from frozen

Yes, lamb chops can be cooked from frozen, but you will need to adjust the cooking time accordingly. When cooking from frozen, it is also important to make sure that the lamb chops are cooked all the way through before serving. We recommend using a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the lamb before eating.

If you have leftover lamb chops, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days.
