This is a great during-the-week dinner, Use of multicoloured tomatoes gives this dish some extra pizzazz.
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tbsp. chopped, fresh oregano, divided
- 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
- 4 lamb chops about 3/4 inch thick each
- 1 x 12 oz.container of grape tomatoes
- 1/4 cup coarsely crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
Whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, minced garlic, 2 tbsp. oregano and ground cumin in a small bowl. Season with a little salt and freshly ground pepper.
Transfer 1/2 cup to a larger bowl and marinate the lamb chops for about 30 minutes, turning often. Add the tomatoes to the remaining dressing, tossing to coat.
Heat the remaining oil in a skillet and saute the chops until browned on both sides for medium (about 4 minutes each side). Transfer to 4 dinner plates.
With a slotted spoon transfer the tomatoes to the same skillet and cook until they just start to wrinkle ( 2 minutes). Top the chops with the remaining dressing, feta cheese and red onion slices.
Now who is the hero at your house? Uhuh!
