Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes


For the lamb and onions:

  • 6 Shepherds Pride or Cedar Springs lamb loin chops
  • 15 cipollini onions, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Kosher salt and black pepper

For the tarragon honey mustard sauce:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh tarragon
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


1. Place the olive oil and butter for the lamb chops in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Liberally season the lamb chops with salt and pepper.

3. Once skillet is hot, add the onions and let brown on one side, about 3-5 minutes. Flip onions over, cover the skillet and let brown on the other side for another 3-5 minutes.

4. Remove lid from the skillet, place the lamb chops among the onions and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side for a minimum internal temperature of 145˚F (medium rare).

5. Make the sauce by combining all the ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. With the processor running, drizzle the olive oil in and process until well blended.

6. Serve the lamb chops and onions with the sauce.
