The addition of honey to the glaze makes for deliciously sticky lamb chops. The cloves add a spicy hint of warmth and the rosemary – well what is Karoo lamb without rosemary?

Preheat the oven to 200 C. Brush chops with olive oil. Brown in a griddle pan. In a separate pot, heat honey, lemon zest, butter, cloves, rosemary and garlic. Remove from the heat, season and allow flavours to blend for a few minutes. Place chops in a baking tray(do not allow to overlap) and por hot honey mixture over the top. Bake at 200C for 5 minutes for rare chops; 10-15 minutes for medium to well-done.

Serve with green beans in sautéed cherry tomatoes and onion.
