Pan-seared Aussie Lamb T-Bone Chops are perfect for quick weeknight dinners! The petite Aussie lamb T-bone chop cooks in less than 15 minutes! So let your kids solve this Aussie Lamb Chop Math 101 question:
An Aussie T-bone chop takes 3-minutes on each cut side to pan-sear. There are 2 cut sides on a lamb chop. Grandma Merry says to pan-sear not only the cut sides of the lamb chops but the edges too. Each of the two edges need to be browned 2-minutes. After the Aussie Lamb Chops cook on all sides and edges allow the lamb to rest 5 minutes. How many minutes does it take to cook and serve Aussie Lamb T-bone chops? The answer: 3 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 5 = 15 minutes!
My little ones love “beasting it” with Aussie Lamb T-Bone Chops! You know, that’s when you are allowed to pick up the petite Aussie lamb chop with your fingers and eat and clean it down to the bone!

Weeknight Aussie Lamb Sirloin Chops
with White Beans, Artichokes, and Green Olives
For the Aussie Lamb Chops:
10 Australian lamb t-bone chops
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon lemon pepper salt blend
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 fresh ground pepper
3 tablespoons garlic olive oil or olive oil, divided
For the White Beans with Artichokes and Green Olives:
3 (15 oz) cans white beans for example cannellini beans, Navy beans or Great Northern
1 (15 oz) can lower sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons toasted dried onions
2 teaspoons freeze dried garlic
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper salt blend
1/2 cup sliced green olives (pimento or garlic stuffed olives are good)
1 (6.5 oz) marinated artichoke hearts, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Step 1: Remove Aussie Lamb T-Bone Chops from refrigerator 20 minutes before planning to cook and season. To season, on a sheet of wax paper (for ease in cleaning), combine garlic salt, lemon pepper, smoked paprika, and pepper. Sprinkle on both sides of lamb chops, and drizzle with1 tablespoon of garlic olive oil. Set aside.
Step 2: Combine 1 can drained beans and 1/2 cup chicken stock in a bowl of a mini food processor. Process 5-10 seconds until chunky smooth. Alternative: Using a vegetable masher, mash beans and chicken broth in a medium bowl, until chunky smooth.
Step 3: Combine mashed beans, remaining drained beans, dried onions, dried garlic, and lemon pepper in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil then turn to a simmer, and stir in green olives, artichokes, parsley, and lemon juice. Keep warm until ready to serve. Season to taste.
Step 4: In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil until shimmering. Add the lamb chops and cook over medium-high heat until the chops are browned, about 3 minutes on each cut side. Turn the chops on their sides and brown, about 2 minutes on each of the 2 smaller ends. Remove lamb chops from skillet and let rest 5 minutes.
Step 5: Divide white beans onto 4-5 shallow bowls and top each bowl with 2 Aussie Lamb T-bone chops. Sprinkle with parsley and a slice of lemon and serve.
Yield: 5 servings with 2 Aussie Lamb T-Bone chops per serving
