Balsamic lamb chops with greens

A quick and simple mid week supper that doesn’t sacrifice flavour for convenience.


  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/4 tsp very finely chopped rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp crushed black peppercorns
  • 4 large lamb chops – or 12 cutlets
  • lots of cruciferous green vegetables


Simmer the first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan until reduced to a syrup – about 5 or 6 minutes.

Meanwhile heat the grill to medium hot then season the chops with salt and pepper and chopped rosemary and grill them for 3 minutes each side if you want them medium rare. Longer if you don’t like them pink.

Serve the chops with steamed greens – Swiss chard, cavolo nero, savoy cabbage, spinach, French beans – and drizzle the sauce over the top.

Simple and tasty.


Works just as well with pesto instead of the balsamic reduction.
