Lamb Chops with Goat Cheese & Herbs


Treat yourself to a decadent meal of lamb chops with rich goat cheese and herbs that balance perfectly. Pair it with the Ranch 32 Meritage for an unforgettable meal.

Yield: 4 - 6
Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes


• 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
• 2 sprigs fresh thyme
• ½ cup soy sauce
• ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
• 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
• 12 baby lamb chops, 3-4 ounces each
• Pepper
• One 8-ounce log fresh goat cheese


Preheat oven to 425°F. Finely chop the rosemary and the thyme and combine. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Arrange lamb chops on a foil-lined baking dish with deep sides. Season the lamb with pepper (no salt is necessary because of the soy sauce), pour the soy sauce mixture over the meat. Slice the goat cheese log into 12 rounds and place one round into each lamb chop. Sprinkle the herb mixture over the cheese. Roast the chops for approximately 15 minutes; broil for a minute or two until the cheese takes on a golden color.

Enjoy garlic mashed potatoes, broiled Asparagus, a side of Arugula Salad and of course the Ranch 32 Meritage.
