I love lamb, and make lamb stew and lamb shanks frequently but am new to cooking the lamb chop. However I was impressed by how easy they were to grill. Lamb is so beautiful when paired with rosemary and garlic. The sweet flavour of the meat can really stand up to the strong pungent flavour and smell of rosemary.
[print_this]Grilled Lamb Chops with Rosemary and Garlic
4 lamb chops, trimmed
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic
2T olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
Remove the leaves from the rosemary and roughly chop. Mince the garlic and combine with the rosemary and olive oil. Generously salt and pepper the chops and toss in the oil mix. Cover and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.
Preheat a grill to medium and grill over direct heat for approximately 2-4 minutes per side or until it reaches 145F internally for medium rare. (Don’t forget to turn the meat to get those nice grill marks.) Let the meat rest for 3 minutes before serving.[/print_this]
