8 American Lamb rack chops or lollipops
Salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil, as needed
Green Goddess Sauce (recipe follows)

Green Goddess Sauce

1 large pasteurized egg yolk
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1 small clove garlic
1 white anchovy, chopped
1/2 tablespoon Champagne vinegar
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 chives, minced
4 sprigs tarragon, finely chopped
3 sprigs flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat a gas or charcoal grill for high-heat grilling. Season chops with salt and pepper on both sides and brush lightly with olive oil. Grill on first side until grill marks form, 3 to 4 minutes; turn and sear on other side until desired internal doneness, 3 to 4 minutes more. Let rest 5 minutes.

Arrange the chops on a serving platter and drizzle with some of the Green Goddess Sauce. Serve with extra sauce on the side.

Green Goddess Sauce

In a food processor or blender, pulse yolk, mustard, garlic, anchovy, vinegar and lemon juice until pureed. Slowly drizzle in oil, drop by drop at first, then faster as it emulsifies. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
