Recipe developed in partnership with Ontario Lamb.


  • 56 lamb loin chops
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) all-purpose flour
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 8 oz (227 g) fresh crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Marsala wine (or dry white wine)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chicken stock
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
  • Fresh thyme


  1. In a shallow bowl mix flour with salt and pepper. Lightly dredge loin chops in flour.
  2. In a large frying pan, over medium-high heat, add olive oil. When oil is hot add loin chops to the pan. Sear on either side for 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. To the same pan, add butter and mushrooms. Sauté mushrooms until liquid are released about 5 minutes. Add shallots and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
  4. Slowly add wine to deglaze the pan; using a spatula to scrape the pan clean. Add chicken stock, Dijon mustard, and seared loin chops to the pan. Continue to simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce is slightly thickened.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh thyme and serve over hot mashed potatoes.
