I used this recipe the first time I cooked lamb and it was easy. I ended up forgetting the butter in the sauce and putting it on top of the lamb instead, but it was just as delicious.

"My husband isn't a fan of vinegar so he didn't have any of the balsamic reduction which I felt totally made the dish and my son shared that he prefers pork chops over lamb chops. However, I love lamb and balsamic vinegar so I thought these lamb chops were fabulous!"

This was my first time making lamb, it turned out great! I replaced the balsamic vinegar with red wine. Delicious!

Super easy to make. We used bone in pork chops instead of lamb which was amazing and the sauce could have used to thicken up more but it was really good.

I love this recipe and I make it every time I decide to have lamb chops for dinner. It pairs excellent with couscous. :)

I used this with pork chops. Added some baby bella mushrooms. I think I would add the brown sugar next time as someone suggested. This is a good recipe as is or you can embellish as you see fit.
