I have been wanting a hearty meal for a while and I came upon this recipe in the Cooking Light Nov. issue.  It had been a long time since I have had lamb and I can say that is becoming a favorite of mine.  Lamb rib chops tend to be a little more fatty so you can trim before you cook or after.  I chose to trim after the meat cooked so that it was a little more tender.  ENJOY!!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon of  minced garlic
8 (3oz.) lamb rib chops, trimmed
2 teaspoons of olive oil

Preparation:
Combine the first four ingredients into a small bowl.
Sprinkle herb mixture evenly over lamb.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add oil to pan; swirl to coat.  Add lamp; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.
Remove lamb from pan; let stand 5 minutes.
