Lamb chops are treat enough on our table, but we especially enjoyed them with this mint-infused mushroom sauce. When I spotted O-bone lamb chops on sale and considered my bounty of fresh garden mint, I knew the two were destined to marry! This recipe was inspired by the Longhorn Steak House, though I reverted to packaged gravy mix in lieu of the brown sauce so the glaze would more aptly be called gravy. Served with rice pilaf and garden green beans. Lip-smacking delicious!

    Superb. I really like lamb, but this makes it even better. And that fresh mint REALLY tops it off well.
