Curried Lamb Chops

8 Lamb chops, preferably from the rack, about 2 lbs
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tb Curry powder
1 tb Peanut oil
1 tb Butter
2 tb Finely chopped shallots
1/3 c Dry white wine
1/2 c Fresh or canned chicken broth
1 ts Tomato paste
1 tb Finely chopped parsley


Sprinkle the chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Rub them on both sides with curry powder to coat evenly.

Heat oil in a skillet large enough to hold the chops in one layer. Add the chops and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn and brown on second side, about 2 minutes. Turn onto the fatty rims and continue cooking until the rims are rendered of fat, about 2 minutes.

Turn the chops flat side down and cook, turning them occasionally. The total cooking time should be about 15 minutes. Transfer the chops to a dish and pour off all the fat from the skillet.

Add 1 tablespoon of the butter to the skillet and heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, about 15 seconds. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Cook for about 1 minute and then add the chicken broth and tomato paste. Cook over moderately high heat until reduced to about 1/3 cup. Swirl in the remaining butter and pour the sauce over the chops. Serve sprinkled with parsley.

Serves 4.
