Herbed Marinated Lamb Chops
|Extra virgin olive oil||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Red wine vinegar||2 Tablespoon|
|Minced garlic||1 Tablespoon (Jarred)|
|Dried mixed herbs||1⁄2 Tablespoon (Italian)|

1. Combine oil, vinegar, garlic, dried herbs, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large plastic bag. Add chops, squeeze out excess air, and seal bag completely. Turn bag to coat chops with marinade and then chill 30 minutes.
2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Remove chops from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Place chops in pan, cover loosely with foil, and cook 7 minutes. Turn and cook, covered, 5 minutes longer for medium-rare. Transfer chops to plates and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
