"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Lamb Chops Calabria Style
Lamb Chops Calabria Style
(Costolette d'Agnello alla Calabrese)

8 rib lamb chops, each about 1-inch thick
1 large red bell pepper or 2 small ones
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups peeled, ripe, fresh plum tomatoes, cut up with their juice,
1/4 cup green olives in brine, pitted and coarsely cut up
Fine sea salt
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
Black ground fresh pepper

Cut each pepper lengthwise along the creases.

Remove the stem, seeds, and pithy core, and skin with a swivel-blade vegetable peeler.

Cut into approximately 1 and 1/2-inch squares.

Sprinkle the chops on both sides with a little salt.

Put the olive oil into a 12-inch skillet and turn on the heat to high.

When hot, slide in the lamb chops.

Brown them thoroughly on one side, turn them, and brown them thoroughly on other side.

Remove them from the pan to a plate.

Put the chopped onion into the pan and cook it over lively heat, stirring frequently, until it becomes a golden color.

Add the tomatoes with their juice, turning them over in the pan once or twice, and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the cut-up peppers, parsley, olives, salt, and generous grindings of black pepper.

Turn the heat down to medium.

Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8-10 minutes, until the peppers are tender but firm.

Sprinkle the chops with pepper and put them into the pan with the sauce.

Turn the chops over several times to coat them well and after a minute or so empty the full contents of the skillet onto a warm serving platter and serve. Serves 4.
