What to serve with lamb chops:

What temperature do you cook lamb chops?

Whole muscle meats such as roasts, steaks, and chops may be cooked to 145 °F (medium rare), 160 °F (medium), or 170 °F (well done). Times here are based on lamb at refrigerator temperature (40 °F).

How can you tell if your lamb chops are cooked?

Use your finger to estimate if roasted, grilled or broiled lamb is done to your liking. Press firmly on several sections of the lamb. If the meat gives easily but is firm and has cooked for the recommended length of time, it is likely medium-rare. A firmer texture and feel indicates more well-done meat! For best results, use your Thermopen!
