Cleveland chef Michael Symon (an F&W Best New Chef 1998) is now getting more national attention as the newest Iron Chef. His latest venture, Symon Says Live to Cook, a book that chronicles his food career (starting at the stove as a boy learning to cook from his Ukrainian father), along with simple recipes like his luscious, tender lamb rib chops, which he serves with a tangy lemon-and-herb yogurt sauce.   More Fantastic Lamb Dishes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Arrange the lamb chops in a large glass baking dish and season all over with the salt, sugar, mint and oregano. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, shallot and garlic. Pour the mixture over the lamb chops and turn to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt with the lemon juice, lemon zest, mint, dill, shallot and garlic and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Preheat a grill pan. Grill the lamb chops over moderate heat, turning once, until pink in the center, about 7 minutes total. Transfer to plates. Spoon the yogurt alongside the chops and serve.
