Lamb Chops with Sweet Potato Chutney
Ingredients
8
lamb rib or loin chops, cut 1 inch thick
1
medium sweet potato, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
2
tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1/8
teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup vinegar
2
tablespoons dried cranberries or currants
1/2
teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Directions
  1. Preheat broiler. Trim fat from chops. Place chops on the unheated rack of a broiler pan; set aside.
  2. For chutney, in a medium saucepan bring 1 cup of lightly salted water to boiling. Add the chopped sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Place shallots, crushed red pepper, brown sugar, vinegar, dried cranberries, and ginger in saucepan. Stir in sweet potato. Heat until vinegar bubbles; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and simmer 2 more minutes or until liquid is slightly thickened and sweet potato is tender.
  3. Broil chops 3 to 4 inches from heat for 10 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degree F), turning meat over after half of the broiling time. Serve chops with the chutney. Makes 4 servings.
