Preparation steps

1.
Crush 2 of the garlic cloves into a small bowl; add the finely chopped thyme and stir to incorporate. Rub lightly over each side of each lamb chop, season with salt. Arrange lamb chops on a plate or tray, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours.
2.
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add the chops, remaining garlic cloves and a few sprigs of thyme to the skillet, season to taste with freshly cracked pepper. Cook to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Lamb should not be over cooked.
3.
Transfer to a serving platter and serve.
