How to Cook Lamb Chops

I have included recipes for roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese.

This recipe dish is quick and easy as it only takes fifty minutes to prepare and cook.

Family Meal

Step by step instructions with photos.

In the UK lamb chops and cutlets are quite expensive. I always look out in the stores and supermarkets until they are on special offer.

That way I can buy them when they are cheap and freeze them. Then if the money allows I buy enough for a few dinners.

Freeze Very Well

This recipe includes a full dinner of oven cooked lamb, mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, cabbage and sprouts.

I also added gravy and mint sauce

Preparation and Cooking Time for Lamb Chops

  • Preparation of Lamb chops - 2 minutes
  • Cooking time - 50 mins
  • Preparation time of roast potatoes, cauliflower and other vegetables - 20 mins
  • The potatoes for the roast and other veg are prepared as the lamb chops cook in the oven. Therefore the whole dish takes 50 mins to prepare and cook.

Instructions on How to Cook Lamb Chops in the Oven

  1. Preheat oven on the highest setting for 10 minutes
  2. Wash the chops under the tap.
  3. Place in a suitable sized oven dish
  4. Add enough water to come up three quarters the way up to the chops
  5. Place in the highest part of the oven at 180 degrees.
  6. After twenty minutes remove the cutlets from the oven and turn around in the dish.
  7. Place them back in the oven for a further twenty minutes.
  8. Remove the chops from the oven. Take out a few table spoons of the juice surrounding the meat for your gravy.
  9. Leave for five minutes. This allows the flavour to settle.
  10. Put back in the oven to heat a few minutes before you dish up the dinner

Preparing the Roast Potatoes and Cauliflower Cheese

Roast Potatoes Recipe

  • Cut up the potatoes the size you prefer your roast to be.
  • Place in a roasting dish with a small amount of oil
  • Put in the oven on the top shelf at the same time as the lamb chops

Cauliflower Cheese Recipe

  • Cut up the cauliflower in small pieces and add to an oven dish
  • Add a small amount of milk, making sure to wet the cauliflower as you pour it.
  • The milk should only be three quarters way up.
  • Add the grated cheese on top of the cauliflower
  • The amount of cheese and milk depends on your taste.
  1. Once you have cooked cauliflower cheese a few times you will know how much cheese topping you and your family prefer
  2. Put the dish in the oven, middle shelf, fifteen minutes after you put in the lamb chops and roast potatoes.

That is your Roast Potatoes and Cauliflower Cheese Ready and Cooking in the Oven with the Lamb Chops

How To Prepare and Cook the Vegetables

Mashed Potatoes

  • Peel potatoes.
  • Cut up the potatoes into small pieces and wash under the tap
  • Put in a small saucepan in water.


  • Peel the outer leaves from the sprouts
  • Cut the hard end off
  • If they are large sprouts you can cut them in half
  • Wash under the tap and put in a medium saucepan in water


  • Cut up the cabbage in to quarters for easy use
  • Then slice the cabbage leaves into smaller pieces
  • Put in a medium sized pot and wash thoroughly under the tap

Cooking Time

The potatoes, sprouts and cabbage should be placed on the cooker thirty minutes before the lamb chops and roast are ready.

If you want to speed this up you can add boiling water to the pans and the cooking time is five minutes less.

I like my sprouts soft so give them twenty five minute to cook

The cabbage and potatoes only take twenty minutes to cook

How to Make Gravy, Kind of!

Some prefer gravy with the lamb chops and other like mint sauce.

I actually have both and add the mint sauce to my gravy on the plate. Give it a try, it is a very unique taste and really enhances the taste of the lamb chop.

Instructions for Making Gravy

Take a medium sized pot and add the following:

  • Half the amount of water from the pot where the cabbage is cooking
  1. Wait until the cabbage has been cooking for about ten minutes so that you will have the flavour and the nutrients in the water.
  2. Replace the cabbage pot with more boiling water.
  • The same amount of hot water
  • The meat juices you removed from the dish with the lamb chops in
  1. You will have about half a pint of liquid in the pot. Bring to the boil.

Preparing the Gravy Mix Powder

  • Put about four tablespoons of cold water into a cup and add two tablespoons of the gravy powder.
  • Mix very well with a wooden or plastic spoon until all the powder has dissolved into the water.
  • If it is too thick add more water. Make sure all the lumps are gone
  1. Now comes the part where you have to concentrate if this is the first time you have made gravy like this.
  • Bring the water to the boil in the pot and start to stir in the mixed gravy powder at a continuous level and speed.
  • Do this until all the powder is gone OR if the gravy in the pot is getting too thick.

That is your gravy cooked and ready for when you have the dinner on the plate.

I have just realised writing these instructions for the gravy really makes it sound hard but it is not.

Give it a try because this is the best way to make homemade gravy.

Once you have tasted the difference you will be making gravy this way with every meat dish. I can not give you precise measurements of the amount of cabbage water, plain water and meat juices.

I have been making this gravy for years and do it depending on how many people I am cooking for. But the best thing about gravy is that is lasts in the fridge until the next day and freezes great.

Freezing Gravy

I always make enough gravy for everyone and extra for the freezer when I am cooking any red meat. I freeze it in a bowl and then just pop it in the microwave when needed.

I do not make homemade gravy from scratch with flour. The reason I do not cook gravy this way is that it takes too long and to be honest I prefer the taste when it is made from the Bisto powder.

You can buy Gravy granules where you only have to add boiling water and hey presto your gravy is made.

It tastes awful and I never use it even in an emergency. But a lot of my family do not mind the taste and use the granules in their own cooking

      Nice recipe, but I love pork chops. Do you have a simple recipe for them? Just wonderin'.

    • viking305 profile image

      L M Reid 4 years ago from Ireland

      drbj. Pork Chops could be cooked in exactly the same way as the lamb chops but I would use applesauce instead of gravy and mint sauce when dishing it up.

      Thanks for reading

      I recently tried cooking lamb chops in the oven because I thought there would be less mess to clear up. (I was right about that.) It didn't occur to me to cook the rest of the dinner in the oven - an important point, now that fuel is so expensive.

      I've voted this a useful hub.

    • viking305 profile image

      L M Reid 4 years ago from Ireland

      Yes lamb chops cooked in the oven have a different taste to those that are fried. And there is less mess too.

      2patricias, I have always tried to prepare the veg and potatoes etc that can be cooked in the oven if I know it will be on for a while.

      My mother taught me most of these recipes and I learnt this practice from her. She had to think of ways to save on the electricity bills because money was tight then when I was growing up as it is getting again now a days.

      This looks so good, I love lamb chops. The cauliflower cheese sounds delicious as do the potatoes and the sprouts. This is a very healthy meal filled with vitamins, minerals and protein. I'm going to make this for supper one night. Thank you.

      Great sounding meal with all of the vegetables added to the cooked lamb chops. Lamb chops are expensive on this side of the Atlantic also compared to other sources of protein, but a nice treat once in a while. Thanks for all of your cooking tips. Voted useful and sharing.

      Lamb...! no doubt it is very tasty. My uncle has a sheep farm. That is why lamb is tasted by us several time. And it is a very good hub. Nice recipe also.

    • viking305 profile image

      L M Reid 4 years ago from Ireland

      Peggy. Lamb chops are expensive here too but they are on special now and again and so I buy them when they are cheaper and freeze them. Thanks for the votes and share

      The cheese on the cauliflower does make a lovely vegetable that tastes different to boiled cauliflower. So creativelycc if you get a chance give this recipe a try, you will not be disappointed.

      Breathing. That is great that you have access to lamb from your uncle's farm. The lamb would be a lot fresher from there rather than the butchers or other stores.

      You made my mouth water just looking at the pictures. Cauliflower I love, but I've never fixed it with cheese. I can see that all the flavors should go well together. If lamb chops are on sale, I'll give it a try this weekend.

    • viking305 profile image

      L M Reid 3 years ago from Ireland

      Yes lamb chops are one of my favourite meals. The cauliflower cheese can be cooked in the oven with the lamb chops and the flavour and taste of the cheese really gives the cauliflower a new taste.

      I hope you try it soon Cyndi10 because I am sure you will love it.
