I have always been a big fan of easy to make main meals that are full of flavour which are healthy. Any meal that requires one pan or one tray or a slow cooker or my latest love, the instant pot to make it, are always a big hit with me.

These oven-baked lamb rib chops are super easy to make and are full of flavour thanks to the lemon, garlic and rosemary.

The white potatoes and sweet potatoes are also full of that amazing flavour. They don’t turn out super crispy in this recipe, but you could easily cook them a bit longer if you wanted them crispier.

Lamb cutlets and other ingredients ready to cook.


Lamb cutlets (or lamb rib chops) are an amazing cut of lamb and are usually the most expensive cut. They differ to lamb loin chops as they come from the lamb rib whereas lamb loin chops comes from the waist.


  • Lamb cutlets – I prefer to use French trimmed ones
  • White potato
  • Sweet potato
  • Garlic
  • Fresh rosemary – you can use dried herbs if you don’t have fresh rosemary on hand
  • Lemon
  • Tomatoes
  • Olive oil


You need to first start cooking the potatoes and tomatoes for approximately 30 minutes before adding in the lamb. Then the amount of time to cook the lamb will depend on your personal taste. I like well-cooked lamb cutlets, as do my children, so will cook for 30 minutes. If you prefer more medium, then cook for around the 20 minute mark.


How long do I need to cook the lamb?

This depends on your personal taste. I suggest in the recipe anywhere from 20-30 minutes to cook the lamb, depending on your preference.

How do I make the potatoes crunchier?

The potatoes will not be super crunchy at the end of the 50-60 minutes cooking time, however they will taste absolutely amazing. If you wanted them crunchier then you would need to cook them a bit longer while you let the lamb rest before serving.

Can I store leftovers?

Yes you can store for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!


  1. This seems like a really long time to roast cutlets. I do mine in the over at 190 degrees for 10m tops, internal temp around 70 degrees Celsius. Was wondering how they turn out your way? Are they well done?

  2. Hi, do you add slices of lemon as well when cooking? They are in the pictures but it only says lemon juice in the recipe.
