Lamb chops with anise (mf)

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Rib lamb chops; trimmed of excess fat
½ teaspoon Dried thyme
2 tablespoons Olive oil
3 tablespoons Unsalted butter; divided
½ teaspoon Minced garlic or garlic puree
1 teaspoon Anise seeds
2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
1 pinch Sugar
2 tablespoons Water
\N \N Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Season both sides of lamb chops with salt and pepper. Press thyme into chops. Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch skillet. Sear chops for a minute on each side.

Lower the heat and cook, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes depending on how well you like your chops done. Turn the chops occasionally while they cook.

Remove them to a plate and set aside; discard almost all of the fat. Add garlic, anise seeds, balsamic vinegar, sugar and 2 tablespoons water.

Scrape up juices and reduce until syrupy. Off heat, stir in 2 tablespoons butter and season to taste with salt and pepper; spoon over chops.

Yield: 2 servings
