These Lamb Chops are a great meal when you want something a little fancier then your typical steak, but you don't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. They are so delicious and perfectly tender.
Allow the lamb chops to come to room temperature for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the bourbon, garlic powder and herbs. Set aside.
Heat the bacon grease in a large cast iron skillet over high heat. While the skillet is heating, liberally season the chops with salt and pepper on all sides.
Once skillet is hot, add the chops and cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not move them around while they are cooking, or they will not sear as well. Flip them and cook in the same fashion on the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Add the bourbon and herb mixture to the skillet with the chops. Allow to cook for about one minute then flip the chops and cook for an additional minute.
At this point the chops should be cooked to medium rare, continue cooking for an additional minute for each level of doneness that you desire.
Allow the chops to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving. Serve drizzled with the pan sauce and sprinkled with fresh herbs.
